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!!!

The date was probably chosen purposely in order to make excuses for the 3/4 of invited guests who don't show.

LOL, I guess it's a players-only event. All the owners will be busy with Yom Kippur.

Maybe he doesn't live in a politically correct world where every last religious date has to be taken into account? You know, the world the res of us live in! Yom Kippur indeed! What percentage of the world's population is Jewish? And what percentage of Jews are so stringent that they could not, would not, attend a wedding due to Yom Kippur?

And most importantly, who the hell cares? You give no evidence they're inviting ANYONE who could or would be affected. And even if they are, let those so religiously afflicted make their own minds up, and go where they think they should.

What a non-story!

Duh    

I'm sure he is devastated by having to choose that date. I'm sure it is weighing heavy in both if their hearts. It's the first thing they thought of when choosing the date. How can they carry on as a couple? It's surely a doomed marriage.

you can't pick a date that will suit everyone- and I find it offensive TMZ makes a joke that plays up to a Jewish stereotype- really TMZ?

If he had it on st.Patrick's day that doesn't mean he doesn't want white people there. Let the man set the day of his wedding anytime he pleases and its up to the guess to decide if they can make it or not
