Justin Bieber on Spiritual Quest, Spent Three Hours with LA Rabbi

Justin Bieber in hat
Justin Bieber is on a self-proclaimed mission to learn how to spread the word of God, reports the Daily Mail, which is renowned the world over for its own spiritual journeys.

So, according to the Mail, on Wednesday, the 20-year-old music legend spent three hours in a meeting with a rabbi inside the Westside Jewish Community Center.

The report does not reveal the name of the lucky clergy, and the Westside JCC doesn’t have a rabbi on staff. It was really early in LA when we wrote this item, so we opted not to call anyone, and used the search function instead, which came up with one result: Rabbi Sharon Brous, who runs IKAR, a spiritual community formed in 2004 by a group of families under the leadership of Rabbi Brous.

“IKAR emerged out of a hunger for a Jewish spiritual community that stimulates the intellect, elevates the spirit, and engages seriously and deeply in the world. From that small beginning, IKAR has grown into a dynamic community dedicated to creating a welcoming spiritual home for L.A.’s diverse Jewish population.”

So that could probably include Christian egg-throwing brats on spiritual quests, right? Thinking aloud here.

He still has two years probation on that egg-throwing prank.

The Mail says Bieber came in a Rolls-Royce, with an entourage of three.

They could be like the wise men following the baby Justin. But I’m mixing traditions here…

Afterwards, Justin dined at Spago in Beverly Hills, and left munching on a sorbet dessert to-go.

He then shared an Instagram from inside his Rolls: “Be intentional with everything you do.”

The Mail says Justin learned about the Jewish faith when he was 13, from his manager Scooter Braun. Braun told Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth that Bieber recited a Christian prayer and then the Shema Yisrael before every concerts.


Last Monday, the Mail reports, Bieber was in Rancho Mirage, reading “Occupy All Streets, ” by Pentecostal pastor Carl Lentz. On November 10, he attended Lentz’s late-night bible study class at Manhattan’s Hillsong Church, with Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin.


In October, Justin and Lentz and the Reverend Jesse Jackson watched the New York Knicks together.

It’s all good.

A source told TMZ that Bieber “has exiled himself from friends, alcohol, weed and everything else that doesn’t involve the good Lord.”
