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.

Is it a prerequisite for every religious ceremony that you have to look ridiculous when doing this asinine ****? I guess it makes sense. Look like a fool while acting like a fool...

This must be his latest angle. Nothing else seems to be working.

Actually, becoming a Bar Mitzvah isn't very hard at all. All you have to do is be a Jewish male and turn 13(Jewish girls become obligated and are Bat Mitzvahs at age 12). It means you are now obligated to fulfill the commandments in the Torah. This is celebrated by being called to give the blessings over the reading of the Torah for the first time. It is just tradition that the Bar Mitzvah boy usually learns a large part of the service and leads it, but it is unnecessary. Hope this cleared stuff up and good on you David!

A Bar Mitzvah is about the best assurance of getting work in Hollywood, or "Little Israel of the USA"!!! The Jews have owned and Run Hollywood since its inception- Every "STAR" in Hollywood is either half or Full Jewish!!! Thats why they win so many Academy Awards- Jews control every thing that happens there- They "surely" help their own!!

Who knew he was a Heb? How does he prove he was a Jew? Hell, I'm cir***sized, does that mean I can get a tourist certificate at the Wall saying I had a Bar Mitzvah? Sure cheapens the religion.
