McCartney attends Yom Kippur Services, Marries Next Day
Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney reportedly spent the night before his wedding at Yom Kippur services.
McCartney married Jewish-American heiress Nancy Shevell in London on Oct. 9. They reportedly attended Yom Kippur services and a break-fast at a local London synagogue, where Shevell, 51, received a blessing in honor of her upcoming marriage.
The couple married in a civil ceremony at London’s Marylebone Register Office, followed by a small reception at McCartney’s north London home.
McCartney’s first wife, Linda Eastman, also was Jewish. She died in 1998 after a battle with breast cancer.
