Honor Your Mother and Father

Each Monday, we choose the most interestingly Jewish announcement from that Sunday’s New York Times Weddings/Celebrations section. Sometimes choosing is hard, and you need to go back a generation for a tiebreaker. This week could easily have been the classic love between a doctor and a labor lawyer.

However, we got to go with Elizabeth Dubin and Alexander Pugatch thanks to the bride’s parents: Her father is chairman of the Jewish Guild for the Blind, and a trustee of Tel Aviv University. Her mother is on the board of the Jewish Women’s Foundation of New York. (The bridegroom’s parents seem very nice as well.)

Mazel Tov to the happy couple! To both sets of beaming parents: When the holiday visits are divided, may you be blessed with more than your fair share.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. 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.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

This is a beautiful idea! I read the wedding announcements each week in the N.Y. TIMES. With so many announcements from intermarried couples, it is wonderful to honor those who marry Jewish (and even more for those who work/fund Jewish charitable organizations.)
