Each Monday, we choose the most interestingly Jewish Weddings/Celebrations announcement in the New York Times. Do we even need to say that this week was difficult? It’s always difficult! Ralph Lauren’s daughter! The always crowd-pleasing Rabbis in love , or alternatively, Rabbi and doctor couple. It goes on.
However, this Saturday Dr. Ilana Simons and Ian Blumenstein were married by Cantor Judith Steel at Housing Works Bookstore Café in Soho—a Tablet Magazine favorite, and the location of Tablet’s upcoming (Thursday, June 16th, at 7 pm) Bloomsday event.
Mazel Tov to Mr. Blumenstein and Mrs. Simons! We hope (assuming you’re not on honeymoon) you’ll join us on Thursday at the site of your nuptials (find me for a congratulatory drink). And if I may be so bold, if you are blessed with children—Leopold or Molly have nice rings to them.
