Mikveh time for Oprah?
Oprah still isn’t a member of the tribe, despite a visit to a Brooklyn Heights mikveh last week.
JTA caught the eye of Jewish hopefuls last week with a title that suggested she was visiting the mikveh to mark the beginning of her new show.
“Oprah did not embrace the Jewish ritual of immersion in a mikveh before launching her new show…but she did visit with two Hasidic Jewish families for an upcoming episode and toured a mikveh. The new series, called “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” will premiere in January on her OWN network,” reports the Huffington Post.
Alas, the talk show maven won’t be joining us for seder. That’s ok. We always have Madonna for entertainment.
