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.
