UU Service Committee founders 'righteous among the nations.'
Israel has named two of the founders of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee as "righteous among the nations" for their work rescuing Jews from the Holocaust. The Rev. Waitstill Sharp, a Unitarian minister, and Martha Sharp will be only the second and third Americans recognized by Yad Vashem, the Holocaust remembrance authority. Here's a quick round-up of news coverage:
