Board Member Rabbi Sarah Bassin reflects on Dr. Hathout in the Jewish Journal
NewGround’s former Executive Director, Rabbi Sarah Bassin, publishes her reflections on the passing of Dr. Hathout in a moving op-ed in the Jewish Journal, titled, “I Miss His Voice.”
In it, she translates the significance of his passing into the Jewish community context: “His passing would be like the death of our early Reformers – Isaac Mayer Wise and David Einhorn. These giants of Reform Judaism defined what it meant to be Jewish and American simultaneously without apology or compromise. That is who Dr. Hathout was for so many of my Muslim friends who mourn him.”
