Famed actress, Elizabeth Taylor has died at the age of 79.  She had recently been receiving treatment for congestive heart failure at a Los Angeles hospital. 

Taylor was raised a Christian scientist, but converted to Judaism at age 27.  Her Hebrew name is Elisheba Rachel Taylor.

MTV has the story:

One of Hollywood’s most legendary beauties, Elizabeth Taylor, died on Wednesday (March 23) at the age of 79 after spending two months in a Los Angeles hospital for treatment of congestive heart failure. One of the brightest stars in the history of the American movie business, Taylor starred in a string of hit movies in the 1950s and 60s, including “Giant,” “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” and “Cleopatra,” while becoming an international sex symbol and object of tabloid fascination for her string of love affairs with leading men.
