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 Sara Friedlander and Matthew Siegel. It was a pretty star-packed wedding Saturday night: The bride is the daughter of not one but two rabbis, one of whom is executive director of the Manhattan JCC; Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum, of CBST (the country’s largest LGBT-oriented congregation in the country), officiated. Oh right, and also, Siegel played the younger son in Brooklyn Bridge!
Seriously, if you didn’t watch Brooklyn Bridge, I pity you. (The opening credits are, criminally, not on YouTube, but if anyone wants to hear a poor rendering of the Art Garfunkel-sung tune—”A world of its own,/The streets where played”—then, I dunno, call me.)
Where was I? Oh, yes. Mazel tov to the happy couple!
