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.

    As Berlin Prices Rise, Israelis Turn East for German Real-Estate Bargains

    JNS.org – Sonnenallee, a street in Berlin’s Neukölln district, looks like it comes straight out of an Arab city — so much so that it goes by the nickname “Gaza Strip.” Kebab and bakery shops are advertised in Arabic; men sit in men-only coffee shops; and bridal shop windows showcase glittery, not-so-stylish gowns. But take a random turn, and you’ll find a swath of bars, burger joints, and Indian restaurants where hip Berliners announce that they have arrived to urban coolness. […]

    A Theatrical Look at Diplomacy and the Oslo Accords (REVIEW)

    Is diplomacy worthwhile, even if the end result isn’t what we hoped for? That is the question, among many others, posed by the new play Oslo, by J.T. Rogers. Making its New York debut at Lincoln Center, the play examines the secret diplomatic process that led to the historic 1993 peace accords. The character of Shimon Peres makes an appearance onstage — and he, along with Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat, tower over the proceedings. But they mainly do so in absentia. Instead, […]

    Israeli Trailblazer Dean Kremer Brings Jewish Values to Nascent Pro Baseball Career

    JNS.org – Other than being part of the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, Sandy Koufax and Dean Kremer have something else in common: a respect for Jewish tradition. Koufax — who was recently ranked by ESPN as the best left-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball (MLB) history — decided not to pitch Game 1 of the 1965 World Series because the game fell on Yom Kippur. “I would do the same,” Kremer said in an interview. Last month, the 20-year-old Kremer became […]

    Will Laughs Lead to Love on Show About Orthodox Dating?

    To date or not to date? That is not the question for most Modern Orthodox singles in New York. The question is when will they find their future spouses, and when will their families stop nagging them about having babies? Inspired by the success of the Israeli show “Srugim,” Leah Gottfried, 25, decided she would create and star in her own show, “Soon By You.” “Dating is so serious already,” Gottfried said. “We wanted to take a lighter approach and laugh at the […]
