Each Monday, we choose the most interestingly Jewish announcement from that Sunday’s New York Times Weddings/Celebrations section. This week, it’s that of Casey Selzer and Justin Krebs, the latter of whom is a prime example of how one can come from a family that works in one quintessentially Jewish industry—Broadway!—and move into a newer one—grassroots political activism.
Krebs’s parents runs a program that allows students to get discounted theater tickets, while his father is a theater professor. Krebs, meanwhile, is the co-founder of Living Liberally, a smiley-faced, volunteer-driven organization that aims to incorporate a dose of liberal politics into people’s everyday social interactions. (Yours truly once interviewed Krebs when his organization was first stepping out.) The bride, meanwhile, has roots in the Bethesda-Chevy Chase area and has opted for the crunchy path of the University of Vermont and midwifery, which definitely earns her points with us. Mazel tov to the happy couple!
