A Venti Cup of Happiness
Each Monday, we choose the most interestingly Jewish announcement from that Sunday’s New York Times Weddings/Celebrations section. This week, it’s that of Breanna Hawes and Jordan Schultz, who were married Saturday. “Schultz,” as we’ve discussed, could go either way, but in this case we know who we’re dealing with because the groom’s father is a certain Howard Schultz of Seattle (also, there was a Jewish ceremony). Indeed, East Coast snobs will take heart in the knowledge that the Starbucks honcho summers in East Hampton. And Jews will take pride in the fact that Jordan is the groom’s middle name, and that his first name is Eliahu.
The bride does sports marketing at Edelman, which is no mean feat; the groom writes about sports for the The Huffington Post. So: Both hail from Seattle and chose to work in sports, despite, presumably, being fans of the Mariners, the Seahawks, and (formerly) the SuperSonics. Mazel tov to the unusually optimistic and happy couple!

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
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.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at email@example.com. 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.
