1. One Year Later

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords plans to attend an Arizona candlelight vigil exactly one year after she and 18 others were shot outside a Tucson grocery store during a congressional meet-and-greet. Giffords, Arizona’s first Jewish congresswoman, suffered a gunshot wound in the head that day.

2. Mila Kunis: The New Face Of Dior

She may claim to be a “jeans and T-shirt” kind of girl, but Mila Kunis is about to turn up the glam, big time! The Jewish actress has just been named the new face of Christian Dior.

Images of the 28-year-old star showcasing the latest versions of the Miss Dior handbag were just released this week. E! Online took to Twitter on Thursday to show their support, “Whatever Mila Kunis is selling (@Dior), we’re buying! So pretty.”

 

3. The Way To Jason Segel’s Heart…

Is through the World Wide Web! Check out this YouTube video of aspiring singer Chelsea Gill asking the “Muppets” revivalist, Jason Segel, on a date. She promises she’s completely sane, disease-free and down with his dorky side.

Segel’s response? Let’s just say he was pretty enthusiastic! On Wednesday, Segel Tweeted, “My favorite thing, maybe ever. I am in awe. Response on the way.” He later Tweeted, “I’m gonna need a couple days on this one.”

This Week’s Top Three Tweet-Worthy Events From Jews Who Make News

1.    Jon Stewart Wants Fox News to Stay Out of His Turkey Dinner

Jon Stewart, host of the The Daily Show, cooked up a fight with Fox News regarding the cable channel’s criticism of President Obama for not mentioning God in a Thanksgiving message on YouTube.

According to The Wrap, Stewart said, “This is about turning Thanksgiving into yet another one of those Christian persecution culture war type things. And let me just say: Don’t you do it. Don’t you do it to Thanksgiving. I’ll give you the war on Christmas. We are trying to f—- that up. I’ll give that up. But this is all Reform Jews have left. … Name another holiday where you can get drunk around your kids by 2 p.m.”

Check out this Thanksgiving tiff for yourself at The Daily Show’s Twitter page where a staffer tweeted, “@FoxNews pundits report that they thanked God on Thanksgiving. http://on.cc.com/u2QAb6 #dailyshow #MomentofZen.”

2.    And The GRAMMY® Goes To…

Adam Levine’s Maroon 5 was nominated for a GRAMMY for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals on Wednesday. ‘Moves Like Jagger,’ a duet with Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera, was included on the band’s third album, Hands All Over.

“Nominated for a grammy!!!!!!! ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!” Levine, whose father is Jewish, Tweeted on Wednesday. Maroon 5 has won eight GRAMMYs since 2005, including five for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals.
