Liz Taylor's Funeral

The A-List Rabbi

3/24/2011 5:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Liz Taylor's funeral will be officiated by a man with plenty of celebrity experience -- because he's helped bury dozens of them ... TMZ has learned.

Liz Taylor Funeral
Taylor is having a traditional Jewish burial ceremony at Forest Lawn cemetery in Glendale, CA right now -- and the man doing the service is Rabbi Jerry Cutler

Cutler has presided over the funeral services for Milton Berle, Shelley Winters, Walter Matthau, Red Buttons and Jan Murray.

We're told Cutler had met Taylor through Jon Voight ... and Taylor's family specifically requested Rabbi Cutler to do her funeral.

She converted to Judaism..but did she PRACTISE it? There is a difference. What about all the husbands AFTER Eddie Fisher & Mike Todd? Were they all Jewish? I highly doubt it.
Liz may have been a talented actress; but that's about it. Addicted to sleeping pills for over 35years!!??? Where in Hell are the Drs who had been prescribing them!!? Oh talks.
Her personal life cast a bad shadow on her. Yes, it comes out just as a President's poor behaviour does. "Madam" suited her most.
