Drew Barrymore’s daughter will be raised Jewish
Drew Barrymore stopped by to discuss marriage and motherhood with the women of “The View” on Friday.
Barrymore, who married art dealer Will Kopelman (son of Chanel CEO Arie Kopelman) seven months ago in a traditional Jewish wedding, talked about being married to a “nice Jewish man” from a “nice Jewish family.” While saying she hasn't converted "yet," Barrymore did reveal that she and her husband are planning to raise their baby daughter, Olive, “traditionally Jewish.”
She also talked about her wedding. "We had a very traditional wedding ceremony with Rabbi Rubinstein, and I did the ketubah, and we wore the yarmulke and were under the chuppah!” Barrymore said.
As for her view of Judaism, she said, “I’m there, I love it. It’s a beautiful faith and I am so honored to be around it. It's so family-oriented and beautiful, and I learn so much and the stories are beautiful, it’s incredibly enlightening. I’m really happy.”
