A Nephew for Nick, Levi, and Shaina

by George Barany and 37-Across's Grandma 17-Across

This "mid-week level" puzzle (15x16) was released on September 16, 2014, a date of particular significance to the family being honored by this multilayered puzzle (pictoral hint to the right). Other than the central answer (37-Across), all other answer words and phrases can be solved without any specialized knowledge about the family. After completing the puzzle (spoiler), click here for a relevant photo montage and a few additional comments and links, which will have to do in lieu of our customary "midrash."
