Rabbi Philip Berg, who founded the celebrity-beloved Kabbalah Centre in LA, died last weekend. A funeral was held for him in Safed, Israel, a town known for its mystic roots and connection to Kabbalah (the Jewish kind, not the pop-culture kind).
Among the white-clad attendees was Ashton Kutcher
, who was there with girlfriend Mila Kunis
. Mila is Jewish, but I have no idea if she considers herself a Kabbalist. Ashton, however, is one of the celebrities most committed to the religious group. He and former wife Demi Moore
were actually married at the Kabbalah Centre in LA. Other celebrity followers include Madonna
, whose son Rocco Richie
had his bar mitzvah last year, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
star Kyle Richards
, and Sandra Bernhard
Us Magazine reports that Ashton was deeply moved by the funeral ceremony, which included a recitation of “Ani Ma’Amin,” or “I Believe,” which is based on an ancient text by Maimonides.
