The grandson of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali became a bar mitzvah at a Philadelphia synagogue.

Jacob Wertheimer, the son of Khaliah Ali-Wertheimer and Spencer Wertheimer, was called to the Torah on April 28 at the historic Congregation Rodeph Shalom in front of 150 people including the boxer, the Sweet Science boxing news website reported last week in an article by Ali biographer Thomas Hauser.
