So happy for Paula Abdul, who celebrated her Bat Mitzvah in Safed, Israel this weekend. FYI, jewelry designer Ann Dexter Jones, Mark and Charlotte Ronsons’s mom, is a descendent of the Lion of Safed (big spiritual leader). It is the birthplace of Kabbalah

Abdul also visited Jerusalem, the Galilee, the Dead Sea and Tel Aviv. And she met with President Shimon Peres and met with Minister of Tourism.

Abdul called the journey, “The most magnificent trip I’ve ever taken…magical and emotional.”

“Holding the ceremony in the tranquil and historic atmosphere of the picturesque 15th-century Abuhav Synagogue in Safed,” says Haim Gutin, Israel Tourism Commissioner for North and South America, “held special signifcance for Ms. Abdul — for Safed is one of the four holy cities of Judaism, along with Jerusalem, Tiberias and Hebron.’”

Rabinowitz's photo-1A friend of mine ran into Paula Abdul not once, but twice in Israel of all places, at a Humus bar–the street shot–and at Uzi-Eli juice stand, where it looks as if she’s having her palms read. And it appears as if she’s having a sensational time. One always hopes that those inside the bubble in Hollywood have time to escape into the world at large, and here she is REALLY exploring. Kudos Paula. . . She has traveled to Israel to have a Bat Mitzvah at the Western Wall. Yup, her parents are apparently Jewish.
She's following me; ran into her again at The hummus bar; comes with quite a posse

Confetti Cannons Blast Village People at TAO Vegas

June 2nd, 2013

Simon G. Jewelry hosted their annual soiree at TAO Las Vegas in The Venetian on Saturday June 1. We spotted just married Katrina Bowdena and Ben Jorgenson, Paula Abdul, Jenny McCarthy, Mario Lopez and his new bride Courtney (who seem to practically live in Vegas), Giles and Carole Marini, and Audrina Patridge. Think acrobats, Lychee Martinies in VIP lounge, and The Angry Mule was served with Kentucky bourbon and Herradura tequila. The Village People ended the evening with a bang, performing Y.M.C.A. with confetti cannons blasting the decidedly VI-B contingent.© Al Powers, PowersImagery.com© Al Powers, PowersImagery.comguests.
