Hollywood Celebrities and Jewish Conversions

The red string bracelet is not enough it seems, as more and more celebrities are bypassing the Kabbalah trend and opting for an all out conversion to Judaism.

Rumor has it that Lindsay Lohan, who was raised Catholic is thinking of converting to Judaism because of gal pal DJ Samantha Ronson. A source told Life & Style Magazine that “Sam’s family is Jewish. Lindsay has learned a lot about Judaism from Sam and admires its beliefs.”

Lindsay's Dad, who is a born-again-Christian told E! "She's exploring right now. She's explored the Church of Scientology, she tried Kabbalah, and now this. I think it's just another phase. But either way, she's involving God in her life, and I'm happy about that."

Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka is said to have promised Nice Jewish boyfriend Jared Kushner (who owns the New York Observer) that she would convert to Judaism if their relationship became more serious. The couple reportedly broke up earlier this year because Kushner's Orthodox family was upset that he was dating a "shiksa."

The wedding of Sasha Baron Cohen (of Borat fame!) and fiance Isla Fisher has reportedly been postponed, as Fisher's conversion process was put to a halt while she filmed the movie "Confessions of a Shopaholic."

We just hope that these celebrities realize, converting to Judaism is no easy task. It can sometimes be a very long process that involves tremendous amounts of dedication and study.
