The Facebook group New York City Genealogy has the most up-do-date information on how to obtain the original images of NYC vital records that are extracted on In their Announcements section, you'll find how to go about this.

Using to search for records for the couple, using the 'Starts with' function for names - 

It is the marriage certificate that may have more information about the couple, Edward McMahon and Rosalyn Bernstein

The death certificate record on Familysearch has his name as Edward McMann:

That will have the cause of death, and where he is buried, and address at time of death.

On FamilySearch, if you look in the upper right corner of the above pages, you will see that there is a family tree for Edward B. McMahon, with links to other FamilySearch records. And as might be expected with a name like McMahon, this person was not Jewish. His NYC birth record has both of his parents born in Ireland:

You never know, but the persons who have contributed to this tree on FamilySearch may know something about the couple and how they met, so you could try contacting them. I suspect that the couple is also in trees on Ancestry, and contacting the owners of those trees could be fruitful. [My track record contacting owners of trees is about 90% no response, but the 10% who do respond are usually the ones who have facts about individuals].
