New flicks with celebs in interfaith relationships and from interfaith backgrounds, plus their baby news!Go To Pop Culture
Itâ€™s official: The Bachelorette, Andi Dorfman, is in an interfaith relationship. But we already knew thatâ€”the frontrunners in her quest for love were not Jewish, and Andi is (she famously acknowledged her religion when she was a contestant on The Bachelor). Interestingly, the man she chose and whose proposal she accepted, Josh Murray, was raised Christian but comes from an interfaith family. While the Jewish Week was quick to call this a Jewish match, the fact is, itâ€™s a combining of faiths, as so many relationships are. Joshâ€™s mother is Jewish and his father is not, but the family practices Christianity.
It seems faith is important in both Andi and Joshâ€™s families. Joshâ€™s younger brother, apparently, has a tattoo of a cross and a tattoo of the Star of David. Josh, 29, is from Tampa, FL, and now lives in Atlantaâ€”conveniently where Andi herself, a 27-year-old district attorney is based. From the interviews theyâ€™ve already done since last nightâ€™s season finale, we get the gist that theyâ€™re planning to wed next year, and that they plan to have a few kids. What will their wedding look like? Christian? Jewish? Neither? Because religion is important to both families, weâ€™re putting our money on an interfaith ceremony.
