Whitney Frick and Andrew Bernstein.(NYT)

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 Whitney Frick and Andrew Bernstein, married Saturday night by a rabbi along with the bride’s mother, a judge. Frick is in publishing; the groom is among other things the author of a book called The Myth of Stress, which is the only thing that makes us suspect his Jewish cred. As for the bride, her name struck a note of familiarity as she is indeed the great-granddaughter of Ford C. Frick, a onetime commissioner of Major League Baseball, after whom an annual award for baseball broadcasting is named (that prize’s inaugural winner was the Yankees’ Mel Allen, né Mordechai ben Yehuda Elya). Continuing the stream of consciousness from Jewish sports announcers and weddings leads invariably to this:

Mazel tov to the happy couple!

Whitney Frick, Andrew Bernstein [NYT]
