Hello! In these weirdo times, The Forward has relaunched A Bintel Brief, which was its original advice column from 100 years ago. Now, Abby Sher and I are dishing out advice about, well, everything: love, family, living in a Christian world, Judaism, anti-semitism — and, of course, Covid-19 (ugh). This is us, drawn by the amazing Liana Fink (I’m on the right, obvs):

Many of you know that I met my husband because of a piece I wrote for The Forward in 2008. Now the paper has made a short video about our epistolary/hurricane/cross-continental romance
, which means that David will become the first goy Jewish movie star and I will become a beacon of hope for single Jewish girls everywhere.
Watch it here! A huge thank you to Nate Lavey and Blair Thornbourgh, who made the short and wrote the story. We
are dying of embarrassment love it!
