David Arquette

Bar Mitzvah'd in Israel

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, 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.

He can put that "certificate" on his wall right next to his WCW World Heavyweight Championship belt and his AA chips. Klumnik.

Huh???? If I'm not mistaken, it takes a boy months and months to prepare for their Bar Mitzvah as they have to memorise large passages of Hebrew scripture. I don't get it, how was he able to do this with no preparation whatsoever, as a spur of the moment thing? It makes a mockery of it.

A Bar Mitzvah is not a spare-of-the-moment event. It is outrageous how celebrities think they are entitled to become Jewish in a day or have a ceremony that 13 year old boys take months to prepare for in becoming a man. David should just stick to wearing his look-at-me-outfits.

Agree with Laurel

His mother was Jewish & his dad was Christian convert to Islam but all the children are Christian.

Coco was christened & Courteney (ex wife now) is Christian so maybe it's new page on his klife but having his Bar Mitzvah like that just because someone told him to do it it's stupid!
