Mayim Bialik is that rare combination: a celebrity with serious Jewish street cred. An Emmy-nominated actress who’s passionately, publicly Jewish, she dishes on the challenges of Shabbat observance as a blogger for a parenting website. She’s even got yichus, or lineage, counting among her ancestors canonical poet Hayim Bialik.

Of Brainy Jewish Actresses And Not-So-Charming Rebbetzins

I’m not a big celebrity watcher, but I wanted to let you all know that I did, in fact, hear that American-Israeli Jewish actress Natalie Portman (nee Hershlag) is engaged. And that her intended, French dancer Benjamin Millepied, is, according to bloggers far more in the know than I, probably not a Member of the Tribe. 

So there you have it, another Jewish celeb (and a day school grad to boot) coming over to the dark side.

A charming commenter on Rabbi Jason Miller’s blog has already decreed her a “self-hater.”
