Two weeks ago we wrote about the L&O (CI) filming and described the range of events that take place in our spaces, and on Thursday our little old board room was the site of another special event: Jeremy Rauch proposed to Rebecca Stern. Because we are discreet and not like those other gossipy blogs, (the couple should be able to tell friends and family themselves) we will offer these highlights:
Jeremy’s childhood friend Yossi Faber and his fiancée Sarah Gross arrived early to stage the room with a gorgeous bouquet of red roses, a PowerPoint presentation, a poster, and other festive accoutrements. They hid in our office kitchen while Jeremy and Rebecca, who had just toured the Museum, came to the 4th floor.
Yaffa in Operations arranged the magical event with Jeremy who had looked at our website after his father remarked what a beautiful location this neighborhood happens to be.
The staff could barely contain themselves waiting for the couple to come out. And when they did we all erupted in cheers of Mazel Tov and great applause. Ivy observed that the Museum is now part of their family history. They will bring their children to see where they became engaged, and the Museum will be part of a loving memory for generations. All in all, a rather unusual and happy ending to an ordinary Thursday.
