Big Love, Jewish Style...



So, a lot of people know about the HBO show Big Love. You know...the one about the religious man with three wives.

But in Brighton, England, Phillip Sharp became a real life Big Love style celebrity. He claims to be a rabbi and he has seven "wives."

In a self-styled reincarnation of a biblical king, Philip Sharp lives in Brighton, on the southern coast of Britain, with his seven wives and five children. Though not legally married they live according to the belief they are bound in the eyes of God to “love and eternally serve him in every way”. In return, his job is to bring them close to God “in the covenant of the family”.


His wives ages range from 27 to 62 (one of the 62 year olds was still a virgin when she became Sharp's "wife"...um...ew) and only one of the seven was born Jewish. The rest converted. (Oh yeah, and the other 62 year old wife is the MOTHER of the 27 year old wife. Double EW)

Sharp claims that he received a vision from God, who told him that he was the reincarnation of a Biblical king. Because of his claims, his original 17 year marriage broke down and his wife tried to have him committed. The congregation he founded is called Shema Yisrael.

Needless to say, the British Jewish community does not recognize Sharp as one of their own. He is a Messianic Jew in his practice and his family is therefore not seen as Jewish.

    Good for him. "Traditional" marriage is bogus. The Torah doesn't say shit about marriage being a "one-woman-one-man" sort of thing ( it actually doesn't say ANYTHING about marriage, period, except for how to get divorced ), quite the opposite actually. On the other hand, sleeping with a mother and her daughter isn't exactly Kosher so... yeah. The whole Messianic thing though... ? I guess I'll just refrain from making any comment on that.
