Each Monday, we choose the most interestingly Jewish announcement from that Sunday’s New York Times Weddings/Celebrations section. Lot of clergy this week: grandfather officiating; father officiating; another father officiating (he’s the former rabbi of D.C.’s Temple Sinai), and his son’s also a rabbi.

But this week’s has to do with more secular rabbis: It’s that of Laurie Pila and Gregory Sheindlin, whose Saturday wedding was officiated by the groom’s father and stepmother, both of whom are judges. In fact, Jerry Sheindlin succeeded Hizzoner himself as the presiding judge on The People’s Court, from 1999 to 2001. I think the stepmother’s been on television too.

Meanwhile, the groom’s an attorney, the bride a video producer. No judging. Mazel tov to the happy couple!
