Yesterday, Will Smith visited Jerusalem’s Western Wall and crashed Atir Cohen’s passage from boy to man. While to 13 year old Cohen who got to take a picture with Smith after he rolled up his Torah, it was the best bar mitzvah ever. Which got us thinking what are some of the best bar mitzvah’s ever? Here’s a list of our top five:
5. Sasha Dominguez, rented a Ferrari Spider, a hummer and a jet ski and filmed 27 hours of a Mission Impossible-inspired movie about her Bat Mitzvah.
4. Sarah Gold, Ari Gold’s daughter in the HBO show Entourage, had a lavish Beverly Hills style event with hot superstar guests like Vincent Chase (who Sarah even got to dance with!) But the best part was garnering nominal affection from her dad.
3. David Rubin, a scholar of ancient Minoan civilizations, just had his Bar Mitzvah at 89 years old. He’s now a man.
2. Elizabeth Brooks, The Rainbow Room, in New York. Forget Aaron Reid’s super sweet sixteen, Elizabeth is the queen of the 8th grade. Daddy, Multimillionaire David Brooks, reportedly spent over $10 million to corral superstars like Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, Tom Petty, Don Henley, Stevie Nicks, Ciara and DJ AM . For less than a million bucks, 50 cent sang "go shorty, it’s your Bat Mitzvah." The party, with it’s concert theme, featured jumbotrons and gift bags stuffed with video i-Pods. While the aformentioned musicians jammed all night on the main stage specially built to impress Brooks’ 13 year old friends, poor Kenny G was only hired to play during cocktail hour.
