The groom (R) two decades ago in Brooklyn Bridge promotional material.(Sitcoms Online)

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 Sara Friedlander and Matthew Siegel. It was a pretty star-packed wedding Saturday night: The bride is the daughter of not one but two rabbis, one of whom is executive director of the Manhattan JCC; Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum, of CBST (the country’s largest LGBT-oriented congregation in the country), officiated. Oh right, and also, Siegel played the younger son in Brooklyn Bridge!

Seriously, if you didn’t watch Brooklyn Bridge, I pity you. (The opening credits are, criminally, not on YouTube, but if anyone wants to hear a poor rendering of the Art Garfunkel-sung tune—”A world of its own,/The streets where played”—then, I dunno, call me.)

Where was I? Oh, yes. 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.
