Pamela Anderson visits the Western Wall
Actress Pamela Anderson visited the Western Wall in Jerusalem.
Anderson, the former star of “Baywatch” and a model, arrived Sunday in Israel and will participate as a guest judge on Israel’s “Dancing with the Stars” on Monday and Tuesday. She also will dance each show with Australian partner Damian Whitewood.
Anderson visited the Western Wall on Sunday night, arriving with her head and shoulders covered, where she prayed silently as other worshipers tried to photograph her.
Earlier Sunday, Anderson said she would work to convince haredi Orthodox lawmakers to support an anti-fur bill proposed in the Knesset. The measure has been held up in Israel’s parliament over the lawmakers’ attempt to exclude the shtreiml, a sable-trimmed hat worn by some religious sects. Anderson is an honorary director of PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
