About Benjamin Levy

Esther Solomon and Benjamin Levy were married on June 1, 1842 in Wellington, New Zealand, according to the document in Hebrew, witnessed by Abraham Hort, Jr. and another early Jewish emigrant, Nathaniel Levin. The Solomon-Levy wedding marriage contract included a promise (Levirate marriage) that if Benjamin died, his brother Solomon would marry Esther. This wedding, the first Jewish wedding in Wellington, was the second known Jewish wedding in New Zealand (the first took place in Auckland in the fall of 1841)
