Lindsay Lohan plans to convert to Judaism
This has been rumored for a while, but now Lindsay Lohan has confessed on Facebook that she will in fact convert to the religion of her partner Samantha Ronson. That, of course, would be Judaism. From JTA:
The actress, who comes from a Catholic family, made the announcement before flying into London for the weekend bar mitzvah of Jewish girlfriend Samantha Ronson’s half-brother. She visited the Westminster Synagogue twice over the weekend, according to the Daily Mail newspaper.
A photographer asked the actress as she entered the synagogue if she was converting and she replied, “I’m trying,” the British paper reported. Her conversion apparently is to show her devotion to Ronson.
“She’s exploring Judaism right now,” her father, Michael Lohan, told the newspaper. “She’s explored the Church of Scientology, she tried Kabbalah, and now this. I think it’s just another phase. But either way she’s involving God in her life, and I’m happy about that.”
