I wanted to clarify two questions I received recently:

Question: Can I just do a traditional announcement? 

Sometimes I include some fun and interesting details, but I can do the basic announcement if you prefer. Your announcement is yours and can be whatever you want it to be. I’ve included my engagement announcement from 1981 as an example: my parents included colleges and occupations, but that’s not necessary either.

Question: Is there any charge for my announcement? 

No, there’s never any charge for social announcements in my column. The American Israelite does this as a service to the community. Recently, I was wondering about who someone was marrying, and then I laughed at myself and realized, no one had written it for me to look up because I hadn’t written about it yet. If you missed a detail you’re wondering about, it might be in The American Israelite’s archives.
