Jennie Ripps and Max Brockman.(NYT)

Each Monday, we choose the most interestingy Jewish Weddings/Celebrations announcement in the New York Times. This week, Jennie Ripps and Max Brockman (who appeared not to have a religous ceremony but were married by one Judge Melvyn Tanenbaum, so, y’know, close enough) take home the prize because each has a parent that has written or writes something that, it seems, could only be written by a Jew. The bridgegroom’s father is the proprietor of (“Conversations on the edge of human knowledge”), which the Times describes as “an online journal that focuses on discussions of science and other intellectual pursuits” (he is also the head of the family literary agency). The bride’s mother, meanwhile, authored a book, You’re Grounded Forever … But First, Let’s Go Shopping: The Challenges Mothers Face With Their Daughters and Ten Timely Solutions, which, I mean. Mazel tov to the happy couple!

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.
