"West Wing" Alums Update: Writer Debora Cahn Married in New York

From the New York Times Style Section:
"Debora Tamar Cahn and Michael Adam Heller were married on Thursday by Blanca Martinez, a community associate, at the New York City Municipal Building. Jeffrey Cahn, a member of the Kehilat Romemu congregation and the brother of the bride, is to lead a Jewish ceremony today at the Faculty House at Columbia.

Ms. Cahn, 35 is keeping her name. In April, she became a supervising producer and writer in Los Angeles for "Grey's Anatomy," the Touchstone television program on ABC. From 2002 until April, she was a producer and writer for Warner Brothers on "The West Wing," the NBC program, for which she won a 2005 Writers Guild Award. She graduated from Barnard College and received a master's degree in acting from the American Repertory Theater's Institute for Advanced Theater Training at Harvard.

She is a daughter of the late Theresa Cahn-Tober, who lived in New York and the late Herbert Cahn, who lived in Avon, Conn. Her father was a nuclear physicist in Windsor, Conn., for the Combustion Engineering subsidiary of ABB, the Swiss industrial engineering company. Her mother was a clinical psychologist at the Tuba City Indian Medical Center on the Navajo reservation in Arizona, and the author of a memoir, "Hide and Seek: A Wartime Childhood" (Harmony Press, 2002). The bride is a stepdaughter of Gerald Tober of New York.

Mr. Heller, 43, is a law professor at the Columbia School of Law and until this month was a vice dean there. Next month he is to become a visiting professor of law at the University of California, Los Angeles. He graduated from Harvard and received his law degree from Stanford.

He is a son of Dr. Naomi Heller and Jack Heller of Washington. His mother is a clinical professor of psychiatry at George Washington University Medical Center. His father is a partner and founder of Heller & Rosenblatt, a firm in Washington specializing in international law.

The bridegroom's previous marriage ended in divorce."
