I understand that Buber's wife never converted to Judaism. I wonder if
anyone can tell me why, that is, since Buber was so strongly involved
with Judaism, why didn't his wife want to go along with this religious
identity? Did she have any religious identity?
Also, this raises the question whether Buber's children or grandchildren
identified as Jewish or not. This question does have some significance
regarding whether Buber's outlook was transmitted to his descendants; and
if not, why not.
