If Jews and anti-Semites have one thing in common, it’s that they spend all day talking about who is and isn’t Jewish. David Beckham has been the subject of much of this discussion. Further fueling speculation that the Galaxy’s biggest salary is more than just “half-Jewish,” he and Posh Spice have decided to enroll their 3-year-old son at a Jewish school:

The former Manchester United and England captain moved to Los Angeles in 2007, after signing a five-year contract with L.A. Galaxy.

The Sun states that the couple last week visited the nursery school, which is “attached to a Jewish temple in Los Angeles,” to meet with staff.

However, the report quotes a source as saying that there is “no plan” for three-year-old Cruz “to be educated in the Jewish faith.”

David Beckham is often reported to have Jewish roots on his mother’s side, and, according to The Sun, he recently referred to himself as “half Jewish.”

The Beckhams have matching Hebrew tattoos showing a line taken from the Song of Songs. The tattoos read: “I am for my beloved and my beloved is for me.”

In Los Angeles, where schools are so bad, people go through a lot of measures to avoid sending their kids to public schools.
