Jewish Characters on ‘Glee’ to Reunite
And we take the credit
Breaking news for fans of Fox’s musical-comedy Glee (which won the Golden Globe for best comedy series Sunday night): Rachel and Puck, the musical-theater diva and the football-playing jock, are going to rekindle the romance they briefly enjoyed in an episode early this season. Said show creator Ryan Murphy: “I was really surprised [viewers responded so favorably to that pairing]. I thought people would find her to be far too irritating for him.”
Part of what makes Rachel and Puck such a special couple is their shared heritage. In fact, it is Puck’s desire to settle down with a nice Jewish girl that compels him to pursue her in the first place. Jeremy Dauber wrote about this intra-faith coupling last October in Tablet Magazine.

We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
