Actor David Arquette, 40, star of the “Scream” movie series and occasional professional wrestler, celebrated his bar mitzvah at the Western Wall on Monday, according to reports.
Arquette wore an all-white outfit, read a Torah portion, and donned tefilin, the Associated Press reported, marking his Jewish rite of passage 27 years after most boys do.
“He was very emotional, saying he was happy to be part of the chain of the Jewish people,” said Shmuel Rabinowitz, the rabbi of the Western Wall. “I’m very pleased to see a man who is returning to his roots.”
