Question
Shalom, I am a Kohen. After Shabbat I went to visit a neighbor’s house for the first time. While I was there I noticed a cabinet with photos of a woman and a card with her name, photo and year of birth and death. I walked right by it to the dining room. At the time I thought absolutely nothing of it. There were so many other things on my mind and it passed my innocent mind. Later I overheard another friend of mine being told to stop bouncing a ball in the residence. He was told: “Oh you shouldn’t bounce balls nearby the altar!” It became clear to me that cabinet with the photos was turned into a type of altar and shrine to her. This seems wrong to me. Especially as a Kohen. I have never had this happen to me and I had no clue what to do. I want to do the right thing and not lie to myself or turn a blind eye. Rabbi, how should I view this situation?

Question
I am planning to get married soon and would like to have some helpful information to distribute to relatives and friends attending the wedding. Especially for the many non-observant people who will be there. I am sure they will be curious and interested in what is going on. Not just about the wedding ceremony, but also about the process leading up to it. Do you have anything I can give to them? Thanks!
