LAST YEAR, OSCAR-WINNING ACTRESS Gwyneth Paltrow said some disparaging things about faith and about the fact that she doesn’t believe in religion (“Religion is the cause of all the problems in the world”). However, after appearing in this week’s episode of “Who Do You Think You Are?” (Produced by Lisa Kudrow and airs on NBC) in which she was able to review in-depth analysis of her connection to Judaism, Paltrow has allegedly changing course and is pledging to raise her children in a Jewish environment.
Watch the journey of the American actress, whose late father was Jewish film producer Bruce Paltrow, was moved to discover earlier this year on the show that her family came from a long line of influential East European rabbis. About a month ago, Gwyneth was rumored to be arriving in Israel for the first time, as a guest at the famous celebrity Kaballa guru Michael Berg’s son’s Bar Mitzva, but Gwenyth has yet to RSVP. Maybe she was waiting for everyone to see THIS.
And this has inspired her to raise Apple (7), and Moses (5) in a Jewish environment, she told guests of a London event hosted by Jewish charity the Community Security Trust.
This revelation comes despite her husband and his band Coldplay’s support against Israel and pro- Palestine in the past, including publishing a pro-Palestine song on their official Facebook page. Let’s just hope that Gwyneth’s next step won’t be translating their kids’ names to Hebrew (“Tapuach” and “Moshe”), or in other words, as used by Danielle Berrin, who cares ?!
