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.

    ‘Tears of Color’ Art Exhibit Shows Struggles of Israelis With Eating Disorders

    JNS.org – “This is how I want to be—without fear. Independent. I want to be like a bird. I want to spread my wings.” So reads part of the description beneath one of the 30 paintings on display until the end of May at the ZOA House in Tel Aviv. The collection represents the first-ever art exhibit of its kind: an exhibit created entirely by Israelis in treatment for eating disorders. Dubbed “Tears of Color,” based on one of the [...]

    Overprotective or Loving? Daughters Reflect on Jewish Mothers in New Anthology

    JNS.org – Rachel Ament noticed that she and her friends often shared humorous anecdotes that were typically variations on a theme: overprotective, worrying Jewish moms who smothered them with love. That included Ament’s own mother. “My mom is probably every Jewish stereotype scrunched into one,” the Washington, DC, resident tells JNS.org. “At the root of all these stereotypical, worrying, overprotective moms, is love.” A social media writer for Capital One, as well as a freelance writer, Ament decided about three years [...]

    ‎Kosher Lust: Love is Not the Answer (REVIEW)

    Kosher Lust, by Shmuley Boteach (Gefen Publishing House, 2014). You really do want to find something positive to say about Shmuley Boteach. He is a phenomenon; very bright, an articulate bundle of energy and self-promotion. Anyone who has the chutzpah to describe himself as “America’s Rabbi” deserves ten out of ten for effort. I believe that along with most Chabad alumni, official and unofficial, he does a lot of good and is a sort of national treasure. In this world [...]

    JNS.org – In a throwback to the golden age of cinema, Hollywood has declared 2014 the “Year of the Bible.” From Ridley Scott’s Exodus starring Christian Bale as Moses, to Russell Crowe playing Noah, Hollywood is gambling on new innovations in technology and star power to revisit some of the most popular stories ever told. “It’s definitely a throwback to the 1950s and early ’60s,” Dr. Stephen J. Whitfield, an American Studies professor at Brandeis University, told JNS.org. Starting with The [...]

    Eddie Carmel, dubbed “The Jewish Giant” by American photographer Diane Arbus, is the centerpiece of a new exhibit opening April 11 at The Jewish Museum in New York.

The son of immigrants from Tel Aviv, Carmel posed for Arbus with his head bowed to [...]

    JNS.org – Has the era of large-scale biblical epics returned? Not since “The Ten Commandments” has there been so much torrential water on the big screen (not counting weather-related disaster films such as “The Impossible”) than in “Noah,” the latest blockbuster from writer and director Darren Aronofsky. “Noah” takes the traditional tale and splices it in an eco-friendly and psychologically driven plot. After Adam and Eve got booted out of the Garden of Eden and after Cain killed Abel, mankind [...]
