Stacey Danker and Steven Lessans.(Brian Marcus/Fred Marcus Photography/NYT)

Each Monday, we choose the most interestingly Jewish Weddings/Celebrations announcement in the New York Times. The tropical storm formerly known as Hurricane Irene provides a complication: It is reported that Stacey Danker and Steven Lessans were wed last night at Manhattan’s Pierre hotel, but would I bet on it? Probably not. Either way, surely at some point this Yeshiva U.-trained clinical psychologist and hedge-funder will be joined in holy matrimony by Rabbi Irwin A. Zeplowitz. A (potentially premature) 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.

Somebody needs to edit/review your copy–this lovely young couple are NOT “Shivah Stars”….
