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.

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.

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