Yoram Kaniuk was nominated as Honorary Guide on October 28, 2011 (66 AH) for his commendable actions of publicly and loudly apostatizing from Judaism and inspiring others to follow. He is a writer of books translated in 25 languages, painter and journalist, living in Tel Aviv, Israel, and married to a Christian woman. His religion status is now “no religion”, like his children, even if considered a Jew by nationality.
