Corbin Petro and Jessica Gelman.(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 Corbin Petro and Jessica Gelman, married last Thursday in, admittedly, an apparently non-religious ceremony, seeing as the officiant is the general manager of the Houston Rockets. Gelman was featured in an article I wrote a year ago about the prominence of Jews in the field of advanced sports statistics; Gelman is vice president of customer marketing and strategy for the Kraft Sports Group, which owns the New England Patriots, and is also the co-founder of the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference (the other co-founder is the aforementioned officiant). She played basketball at Harvard and for a year in Israel. Petro is one lucky lady (as, presumably, is Gelman). And the other bride is the conference’s CFO. Mazel tov to the happy couple!
