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.

A contestant is eliminated after each round. Hecht, 32, said that while the dishes and utensils were new, the kitchen was not kosher, so he couldn’t taste […]
