While I was busy pillaging the Labor Day sale racks and chowing down on meat fresh off the holiday grill, it seems that every other Jew across the country was attending a wedding, if not getting married themselves
Apparently all the Jews within range of the Times’ radar were sitting out the weekend wedding circuit as well, too afraid Irene would wreak havoc on their chuppahs.
This week’s Simcha section was jam-packed with people who do so much good that it only serves to make each and every one of us feel bad about ourselves.
After gushing over the large amount of same sex nuptials in the Simchas Section this past weekend, I scoured the New York Times for what seemed like the smallest amount of Jewish weddings listed in ages
Mazal Tov to all the same-sex couples who were able to (finally!) wed in the city of New York this past weekend. Our only regret is that we weren’t able to make it to each and every one of your ceremonies to join you in a celebratory hora.
Even though this week’s NYT wedding section kept it kinda straight, there were the occasional curveballs we assume were thrown into the mix to keep things interesting and to avoid Times’ readers thinking we are walking right into common Jewish stereotypes.
Always nice to see those who you know you’re distantly related to, or that girl who lived in your freshman dorm at NYU, or that TV writer you wish you knew in The New York Times wedding announcements. Let’s go through them, shall we….
Nothing gets you in the mood to write the Monday Mazal like chowing down on Chateaubriand at an ultra-Orthodox wedding.
