LeBron James

My Big, Fat ...

YOM KIPPUR Wedding!

3/7/2013 6:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0301-tmz-lebron-james-savannah-brinson
LeBron James has finally selected a WEDDING DATE ... which is great news ... for everyone except LeBron's Jewish friends ... 'cause it's all going down on Yom Kippur ... TMZ has learned.

We've obtained a copy of King James' "Save The Date" ... which instructs his friends to block out Friday Sept. 13 through Sunday Sept. 15 for the NBA star's destination wedding to fiancee Savannah Brinson in exotic San Diego, CA.

The "Save the Date" even came with a fun caricature of Bron, Savannah and their 2 children ... each dressed in their finest wedding outfits. Cute.

But here's the problem ... Sept. 13 is the beginning of Yom Kippur -- a high holy day in the Jewish religion in which Hebrews and Shebrews are supposed to fast for roughly 24 hours while praying their faces off in temple.

And for the record, James DOES have Jewish friends ... including the famous Rabbi Yishayahu Yosef Pinto (pictured below) ... a man known around New York as the "Rabbi to the Business Stars."

The good news ... LeBron will probably save a bunch of cash on the buffet.
The bad news ... he won't be able to brag about the savings to the people who would appreciate it.

Mazel Tov!!!

I don't usually get offended by Jewish jokes, have heard them all my life, but gotta say, this was low about how we Jews love to save money - Harvey you should be ashamed.

Everybody isn't Jewish just like everybody isn't gay. TMZ desk jockeys need to go outside more.

They will have their real friends and relatives. I doubt if LeBron or Savannah or Jewish. That is their day of happiness and anybody who doesn't show up should not have been their anyway.

When rap stars are involved with violence or fail to support their children Harvey Levin would never dream of framing the incident in terms of Black culture. But he never misses a chance to sneer at Jews and their faith and their religious representatives.
Does Levin imagine that his denigration of Jews makes him more acceptable to the gentile elite whose his approval he seeks. Does he think they find Levin less Jewish if he promotes the image of Jews as vile, money hungry scavengers?

TMZ has officially jumped the shark. What a non-story full of jewish stereotypes with no clear thought process in the entire thing. Maybe Harvey should stop hiring boy toys and actually hire people who can write.

what's phunny is, that if some christian business(s) and or corporations had a 'close priest affiliation' ya'll be all over them, tearing to shreds their tax forms, inspecting each and every half penny they spent or deducted. hypocrites. don't even try to use some comical BS to try n dupe people. if lebron james had some catholic or other priest as his 'financial adviser' ya'll would have gotten him accused of molesting boys in a heartbeat.

Oh I see....Make a joke about gay people stereortypes and TMZ will skewer you alive. But I see that TMZ has no problem themselves making 2 racist jokes about jews... That is in a nutshell the problem with liberals....Rules only apply to others.

All the invited Jews would still have to send presents but they won't be there, Cha-ching for the couple. It's like a Jew inviting their Christian friends for a December 24-26 wedding,
