Celebrated American comedian, actress, author, and television host, Chelsea Handler arrived in Israel with a video crew on Sunday to oversee a secretive film project in the Jewish state, Israel’s Walla Celebs News site reported.

The star arrived, ostensibly, to take part in a major fundraising event, one said to be attended by many of Israel’s glitterati, in addition to the undisclosed filming.

In mid-December, Handler finalized the details of the fundraiser, apparently for the Tal Center for Integrative Oncology at the Sheba Medical Center, according to Ynet News.

Church of Scotland’s Rejection of BDS and Criticism of Hamas Draws Cautious Welcome From Country’s Jews

Scottish Jews have cautiously welcomed the Church of Scotland's decision at its annual General Assembly to reject the BDS campaign...

Handler and her team according to the few details which were divulged by her production associates, will be filming at sites in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, as well as at familiar tourist sites during her several-day stay.

The material is expected to be broadcast by a television network in the US.

Handler, who was raised as a reform Jew, in an episode of TLC’s “Who Do You Think You Are,” – a TV show that follows celebrities as they research their heritage – discovered that her grandfather was a Nazi.

“My father, I guess, made a deal with my mother when they had children that they were gonna be raised Jewish,” Handler says. “So I connect with my Judaism, or the Jewish side of my family, more than anything else.”

Handler hosted the Chelsea Lately late-night talk show on the E! Entertainment Network for seven years.

    I hope it is not a left wing ploy financed by the White House. They are notorious for the use of Hollywood to dissiminate outright deception to influence elections. If it is media and involves Jews 99 percent of the time is has an anti Semitic spin woven in to it.
