Who Doesn’t Love a Wedding?

Dreams, but definitely no huppah

This morning, in Westminister Abbey in London, His Royal Highness Prince William Arthur Philip Louis of Wales, Royal Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter Master of Arts, of the House of Windsor (formerly the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha), and the new Duke of Cambridge, married Her Royal Highness Princess Catherine, the new Duchess of Cambridge. It was the least Jewish event ever, despite which thousands of Jewish mothers in America woke up very early to view it. Dare I ask what people thought of the dress?

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.

Kate’s mother was born a Goldsmith, and there has been speculation that, going several generations back, one of our representatives might occupy a position in the family tree.

And David Beckham had a Jewish grandfather, for what it’s worth.

Not the same. Not at all. Let someone else explain it to you.

There was a lot of excellent coverage re: Goldsmith, in Vanity Fair, if you check the archives, as there are two of note in the politics of the UK.

@fw, when you refer to “one of our representatives might…” are you referring to the on-line magazine to which we are responding; or, to political representatives in U.S. government?

Which reminds me, in regard to archives, could anyone help me locate the excellent article from last month re: Iranian Jews in L.A.

I haven’t been able to find it for a fellow poster at American Historical Perspectives.
