Fumusa has been married to stage actress ILANA LEVINE, 50, since 2002 and they have two kids. A film director friend, who knows Fumusa, recently told me the actor converted to Judaism “after a long period of study.” My web check revealed that Fumusa briefly mentioned his conversion to a blogger and that he and his wife are active in their local Jewish Federation."
