Bialik, who is Jewish, recalled a recent trip to Israel that caused quite a stir on social media.

The star, an active member of the Jewish faith, acknowledged in a Facebook post sharing the interview that her statements about religion had eclipsed what she had to say about her latest endeavor, GrokNation.com.
