All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.
- Big mazel tov to David Arquette, who had a very spontaneous bar mitzvah at the Western Wall. The actor, who is in Israel filming for a Travel Channel show, was asked if he ever had a bar mitzvah, and upon denial, a rabbi whipped one right up for him. While I’m very happy for Arquette, I don’t think it’s fair that he didn’t have to listen to hours of Torah tropes on tape in preparation. (The Shmooze)
- The latest picture of famous baby Aleph Portman has both geneticists and celebrity baby enthusiasts quite surprised. In other Portman news, it may pay to eat at the same restaurant as Natalie. (Suri’s Burn Book/6 Degrees No Bacon)
- Details and pics of Drew Barrymore’s wedding to Will Kopelman are in, and traditionalists will be happy to know that while the couple kept it low key in the backyard (low key being relative, considering it was the backyard of Drew’s $5.7 million home), they did have a traditional Jewish ceremony.
