Happily Ever After

The Bachelorette and the construction manager

Last night, on the season finale of The Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert gave out her final rose—to a nice Jewish boy from Long Island. Hebert chose J.P. Rosenbaum, a 34-year-old construction manager from the town of Roslyn, who arrived in Fiji by seaplane to propose to her (she said yes). The University of Pennsylvania dental student met the Rosenbaum family in an earlier episode, where she confided to his mother that she was “smitten” with him. Hebert apparently won the family’s approval despite a joke about the calories in his mom’s lasagna.

Originally a contestant on season 15 of The Bachelor, Hebert was eliminated in the 9th rose ceremony before being selected as this season’s Bachelorette. Mazel Tov to the happy couple—may you be the third couple in the show’s history to actually make it down the aisle.

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.

Should we really be celebrating an intermarried couple?

This isn’t an intermarried couple, his name is Rosenbaum, she’s a dentist who went to Penn. So they’re both essentially Jewish.
