Actor David Arquette, 40, who starred in the “Scream” movie series, celebrated his bar mitzvah at the Western Wall on Monday.

The former husband of “Friends” star Courtney Cox (they recently split) was in Israel to film an episode of “Mile High,” his show on the Travel Channel.

Arquette wore an all-white outfit, read a Torah portion, and donned tefilin, the Associated Press reported, marking his Jewish rite of passage 27 years after he turned 13 – the traditional age to receive a bar-mitzvah.

“He was very emotional, saying he was happy to be part of the chain of the Jewish people,” Shmuel Rabinowitz, the rabbi of the Western Wall said. “I’m very pleased to see a man who is returning to his roots.”
