Rabbi Harold S. White

For decades, he has been a pioneer in keeping interfaith families connected to Judaism. I never expected to have a rabbi again after I intermarried, but now I have Rabbi White. He provides our community with intellectual rigor, compassion and thirst for social justice. He transmits the stories of his own teachers — Heschel, Buber, Kaplan and his fellow chaplains (Catholic and Muslim) at Georgetown University. He’s 81; he has been way ahead of his time for his entire career.
