Timothy “Tim” Keller’s first term as the mayor of Albuquerque began nearly a month ago, and he has already gotten to work….
Keller identifies as Catholic, whereas his wife, Elizabeth Keller, identifies as Jewish. His wife attends service with his family on Christmas and Easter, and he attends services for the Jewish High Holy Days, he said. Their children, Maya and Jack, have been baptized at Holy Ghost Catholic Church and have been through a Jewish naming ceremony.
“We are believers in interfaith marriage. We are trying to raise our kids in both traditions, and until teenage years you can actually do that, but then you have to pick because you get into Confirmations and Bar Mitzvahs,” Keller said.
