New flicks with celebs in interfaith relationships and from interfaith backgrounds, plus their baby news!Go To Pop Culture
Weâ€™re so proud of the role that Michael Douglas is playing. No, not his new movie, Beyond the Reach, where he plays a villain, Gordon Gekko-style. Weâ€™re proud that heâ€™s chosen to speak out against anti-Semitismâ€”first in an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times, and this morning on the Today Show. And, as important, that heâ€™s supported his son Dylan as he has explored Judaism and begun making Jewish choices, including a bar mitzvah in Israel last yearâ€”and that heÂ is becoming an advocate for interfaith families.
The recent recipient of this year’s Genesis Prize,Â DouglasÂ said of his son, “he’s brought a lot of spirituality to our lives.” We’re thankful for that, because as Douglas says, “Now I’m actively involved with bringing interfaith families together.”
