Rabbi Sherwin Wine, 1928-2007


We just found out that Rabbi Sherwin Wine, founder of the Society for Humanistic Judaism, died on Saturday in a car accident while on vacation in Morocco. Secular Humanistic Judaism has consistently been an extraordinarily friendly place for interfaith families to explore Judaism.

Our sincerest condolences to his family and loved ones.

A Muslim-Jewish Wedding


It appears that we’re not the only ones interested in Muslim-Jewish relationships.

Ha’aretz recently published this story about the wedding of Hadar Harris, a Jewish human rights lawyer, and Rahim Sabir, a Moroccan Muslim who was one of the United Nations’ first human rights observers in Darfur. This follows a New York Times story about their wedding.

In the interest of full disclosure–and self-promotion–we should note that Hadar is a loyal reader and supporter of InterfaithFamily.com. Congratulations, Hadar and Sabir!
