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!

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.
