Mark Zuckerberg ties the knot



Mazel tov to the happy couple

It’s certainly been a shavua tov (a good week) for Mark Zuckerberg, who in the past two days has officially shed bachelorhood and acquired billions.

On Friday, Zuckerberg took the 8-year-old Facebook public for the market price of a $100 billion.

On Saturday, Zuck announced—on Facebook, of course—that he wed longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan, 27, in a small ceremony in the couple’s backyard. According to the Associated Press, it was a secret wedding and invited guests thought they were gathering to celebrate Chan’s graduation from University of California, San Francisco medical school. Chan received her MD last Monday, the same day Zuck turned 28.

The couple met almost a decade ago as undergrads at Harvard.

No details yet on whether a rabbi performed the ceremony, but what we know is Zuck gave Chan “a very simple ruby”, according to an anonymous source for the AP, and that no more than 100 guests dined on sushi from the couple’s favorite Palo Alto restaurant.

Don’t worry gals, there will be more Jewish billionaires.
