Lana Kimayeva and Yoav Lurie.(NYT)

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 Lana Kimayeva and Yoav Lurie, married Sunday. She trains journalists who cover the news in Europe and “Eurasia” (one suspects from her and her parents’ names that she can speak Russian), he works in energy. His mother heads up the Los Angeles chapter of American Friends of Tel Aviv University, while his father’s father was Zvi Lurie, a signatory to Israel’s declaration of independence who was in charge of Hashomer Hatzair, the great (and still-existing) Zionist-socialist organization during the period of the Mandate. It’s ironic that one side of the family probably fled Communism while the other side probably had Communists: only in America. Mazel tov to the happy couple!
