David Arquette

Bar Mitzvah'd in Israel

6/11/2012 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0611_david_arquette_mainDavid Arquette has FINALLY become a man ... 'cause the 41-year-old actor just had his Bar Mitzvah in Jerusalem.  L'chaim!

Arquette -- who's in Israel to film a travel show -- had been attending a separate Bar Mitzvah ceremony for a local boy, when someone suggested David should get a BM of his own.

According to VosIzNeias.com, David -- whose mother is Jewish -- liked the idea ... so he strapped on a kippah and tefillin (prayer garb) and made it happen right in front of the Western Wall.

David was later presented with a Bar Mitzvah certificate ... but as everyone knows, the occasion doesn't become official until someone puts him in a chair and hoists him around the room.

Ummmm, I always thought that it took months of work, including the memorization of large parts of the sacred Talmud to become a man - Bar Mitzvah, a "Son of the Commandment". This looks like a tourist trap certificate made on the spot by some shameless entrepreneur.

Mazel Tov!
Now if he can sidestep the extreme Zionism and all that Hollywood Kabalah crap, I think he'll make a fine Jew... and maybe even an actual grown-up man.

You have to have studied for a certain number of years before have your Bar Mitzvah - you just don't decide to do it. And the comment about when it becomes official is really insulting.

I suppose he couldn't afford the entrance fee for scientology any more.

That certificate looks real to me...someone coached him in reciting from the portion of the Torah that he needed to read for his Bar Mitzvah, so what? His heart is in the right place. In any case, Mazel Tov David, make us proud.

Is that a catch-the-moment TMZ camera he's wearing on his head? Nice touch.

Good actor who chooses a lot of bad movies and roles :D
Did good as Gus McCrae in Lonesome Dove's Dead Man's Walk, played out on Robert Duvall's character mannerisms like a twin brother.
