- This is corrected now.שהרן שלח is correct. The first name starts with a "sin", the family name with a "shin". 220.127.116.11 15:18, 14 October 2005 (UTC)
- Good point; it is now expanded as "Zermelo–Fraenkel set theory, with the axiom of choice". -- Avi 03:48, 30 June 2006 (UTC)
I removed Bartel Leendert van der Waerden from "see also": the van der Vaerden article says nothing about Shelah. Also, the article text already links to "van der Waerden's numbers V(C,N)". If there are more connections between the two, please write in the article. Mukadderat 19:29, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
Ratosh and family -- sources
- פרופ' שהרן שלח מן האוניברסיטה העברית בירושלים, בנו של יונתן רטוש, הוא חתן פרס וולף למתימטיקה לשנת 2001 וחתן פרס ישראל
(emphasis added), which means
- Professor Saharon Shelah from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, son of Yonathan Ratosh, ...
However, I do not know any published sources that mention his wife or children, except for the occasional dedication: For example <original research> his book Cardinal arithmetic is dedicated to his wife Yael, and his Proper and improper forcing is dedicated to his son Omri.</original research>

- I can read the Hebrew (Wolf prize in 2001 etc.) Thanks, I'll add it to the article. If you can get me the ISBN of the work in which he thanks his wife and kids, that should be enough. Thanks! -- Avi 13:46, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
- It also mentions his wife Yael by name as well, so that is supported. -- Avi 13:52, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
The two books I mentioned are:

Thanks. I've sourced Yael to the news article, and I cannot find the P&IF book excerpts on the web, so I cannot verify that. I'll look around some more. I did infobox the article properly, though. -- Avi 14:22, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Religion - source
The infobox claims that Shelah's ethnicity and religion are both Jewish. I doubt that you can find a source for the claim that Shelah's religion is Jewish, or that he has any religion at all. Our article Yonatan Ratosh says that Ratosh wanted
- to divorce [himself] from [his] Jewish roots and embrace a new identity a "Hebrew"
which suggest that also his son Saharon Shelah was raised as a "Hebrew" rather than a "Jew". --Aleph4 15:37, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
I agree. I now removed "Judaism". (I know that Shalah is explicitly non-religious, but I doubt that I can find a reference for this. So I did not put Atheist there instead, which seems to be controversial anyway.) Brontosaurus 22:27, 17 March 2007 (UTC)
Wiki markup for citation "Memoirs of a Son" is screwed up
I replaced the 2008 picture with the 2005 picture. The older picture shows Shelah in his office at work (and quite happy); the newer one shows him posing for a picture. I think the older picture is better for the article. --Aleph4 (talk) 23:41, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
