1. Bar Refaeli May Someday Join JDate

Single Jewish men everywhere: have hope because Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli says she may someday consider joining JDate!

Refaeli was recently ranked at the very top of Maxim’s Hot 100 list and was quoted in the magazine’s September issue saying that becoming a Jdater® may be a good option for her in the future! The famous ex-girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio says if she is still single in 13 years, it could happen! “Maybe if I’m still single when I’m 40,” Refaeli says, “but not for now.”

13 years may seem like a long time, but good things come to those who wait!

 

2. Jonah Hill is a Creepy Paparazzo

Jonah Hill now knows what it feels like to be a member of the paparazzi! The Jewish actor says he is “embarrassed” after being caught taking pictures after a woman who gave birth suddenly in a park.

The actor stumbled upon a scene in New York City last week where a woman was in the middle of child birth. Hill, who had to have been shocked by what was happening, stopped to take pictures of the birth and the aftermath on his cell phone. He awkwardly even photographed the placenta!

What Hill didn’t know was that he was also caught on film by a nearby paparazzo! Hill says he was embarrassed by the events and later Tweeted, “Craziest thing I’ve ever seen. A woman gave birth next to me in a park. I took a picture of the placenta and TMZ caught me. Embarrassing.” Yep, you should definitely be embarrassed by that one!

 

3. Aly Raisman is Headed to Israel

Jewish gymnast Aly Raisman has accepted an invitation from Israeli government officials to visit Israel. Raisman, who performed a floor routine to the melody of the Hebrew folk song “Hava Nagilah” during the London Olympics, won an individual gold medal in her floor exercise last week and a bronze on the balance beam.

The Jerusalem Post reported that Yuli Edelstein, Israel’s Diaspora Affairs Minister, wrote an impassioned letter congratulating Raisman on her Olympics achievements and then invited the 18-year-old gymnasts to visit.

“For me personally, as the minister in charge of relations with Diaspora Jewry, hearing why you chose the song made me realize that the concept of Kol Israel Arevim Zeh Lazeh [All Jews are responsible for one another] still holds true and that the Jewish people remain united no matter how far apart we may live.” Edelstein said in a letter to Raisman. “I was impressed that someone so young made such a monumental, ethical decision.”

Jonah Hill’s new movie, 21 Jump Street, is pulling in good reviews. The Jewish actor posted on his Twitter feed on Friday, “#21JumpStreet is 87% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes! It’s out in theaters RIGHT NOW! Go see it!”

21 Jump Street is a comedy based on the 1980’s drama of the same name starring Johnny Depp. The new movie hits theaters today and stars Jonah Hill alongside Channing Tatum as two young underachieving cops who are sent to a local high school in order to blend in and bring down a synthetic drug ring.

 

2. Out Of Luck

Dustin Hoffman’s television debut has been canceled. The Jewish actor starred in HBO’s new show, Luck, up until this week when it was canceled following an incident resulting in a horse dying on set. The show was already under investigation after two horses died on set last year.

PETA Tweeted on Thursday, “After 3 horses died on set, @HBO has announced that it is canceling Luck & ceasing all production on the series.”  Hoffman, the star of the show, has starred in dozens of movies, but Luck was his first television series.
