Entertainer Madonna’s son Rocco celebrated his bar mitzvah this past Friday and Saturday at the Kaballah Center, in New York City, US Magazine exclusively reported, citing a source at the Jewish life-cycle event.

Rocco’s father is Madonna’s ex-husband British film director Guy Ritchie.

Madonna, 54, attended the bar mitzvah celebration with Brahim Zaibat, 25, her French-Muslim model boyfriend. The gossip press reported last year that Zaibat proposed to Madonna at the same Kaballah Center, but no confirmation or wedding ever materialized.

  • Maybe Rocco did it for the fountain pens and cufflinks?

  • SHE SAID A FEW YEARS AGO
    that she has no feeling to convert to JUDAISM.She said she just wants to learn the mystisism of kaballah.
    Madonna is a roman catholic italian. Her yearly donation to the fraudulent center of a fruadulent man who was considered irrelevent in new york city when he failed to captivate the Jews in New York of his fraudulent society of frauds……LOLOL.
    AND THIS IS NEWS?
    EDITORS, I THOUGHT MUCH MORE OF YOUR SITE THEN THE RECENT TRASH YOU HAVE GIVEN EXPOSURE TO.
    EVEN BOTEACH HAS BEEN CONDEMNED IN ALL TORAH COMMUNITIES
    AND YOU POST HIS RUBBISH.
    If you need ideas of substance try the newest SPIDERMAN issues on the news stands now.

  • So, is she really Jewish? Is her son really Jewish? Some years ago, long after she started this Kabbalah thing, she seemed to deny, during an interview, she was Jewish, saying she had “not converted, or anything like that.”. I don’t think anyone who has not converted or does not have a Jewish mother, can be Jewish just by following this faddish Hollywood Kabbalah movement.

    This sounds like a bogus Bar Mitzvah to me. Maybe he had a bogus bris, too.

  • And she is the poster of edomite “Jews” by confession, that is, without Jewish blood!

  • She comes from false rabbis of kabbalah. A basic example of their contradictions: Their teachings about “bread of shame”, one must earn everything, nothing is free in the world, there is nothing for free, so people have to work hard and make money to pay them; whereas true kabbalah teaches the opposite, how to receive an easy livelihood without bread of shame and how to get rid of bread of shame from its root so one can receive it all even without deserving it and without paying.

    All shefa (sustenance) descends directly to the world. Each person can receive what he/she needs, though not what he/she wants, that is, the nullification of free will and bread of shame. This is only possible after one has rectified his own desires based on free will or free choice.

    The Brewish State: Israel Taps Into Growing Craft Beer Bazaar

    JNS.org – It’s widely known that Israel has penetrated the wine market, with some of its sophisticated Israeli blends surpassing historically excellent wines from areas such as the Napa Valley or Bordeaux. But what about beer? For decades, Israel has offered solely the Maccabi and Nesher brands. Not anymore. “There is a huge push of people making beer at home. The country is approaching over 30 craft breweries in the last year or two, making nearly 200 beers,” says Avi Moskowitz, […]

    The Collected Works of Primo Levi, Edited by Ann Goldstein (REVIEW)

    Primo Levi and Elie Wiesel were the two most immediate and authentic literary voices who gave witness to the Holocaust. Wiesel was an extrovert and a very public figure who wrote initially in French. Levi was a modest retiring chemist who wrote in Italian. Whereas Wiesel was rooted in the Eastern European Jewish Hassidic world, Levi was the product of an assimilated, secular Italian society that saw itself as Italian first and Jewish as an accident of birth. As Levi himself said, “At Auschwitz I […]

    Wine Brings Judea and Samaria to Tel Aviv

    JNS.org – Wine has long been considered a social lubricant, and it’s Nir Lavie’s hope that wine from his Har Bracha Winery in the Samarian hills will serve as a social lubricant between the city-goers of Tel Aviv and the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria, two locales split geographically, and often politically, on the left and right of the country. The new flagship store of Har Bracha has recently popped its corks on 190 Ben Yehuda Street in Tel Aviv, […]
