Before spending the rest of the day discussing you-know-what, can we take a brief blogpost to recognize that the New York Times—whose new official Scroll epithet is “a daily magazine of Jewish life and culture”—chronicled the wedding of two rabbis by two more rabbis?
And there’s more! Gawker’s nuptial scorekeeper, one Phyllis Nefler (which could be a Jewish name, although I hear it’s a pseudonym), determined that the Glazer-Skloot union was actually not the weekend’s Jewiest. That honor, rather, belongs to the happy coupling of Julie Goldman and David Weinfeld. The bride’s father sits on the board of the American Jewish Committee’s Boston chapter; the bridegroom wrote his thesis on American Jewish humor and “identifies” with Larry David (wow). Only one rabbi at their wedding, though.
