Yom Kippur helps cut LeBron James’ wedding guest list

Yom Kippur helped keep the guest list of NBA superstar LeBron James’ wedding to a manageable number, according to the New York Post. James, who married his high school sweetheart and mother of his two children, Savannah Brinson, on Yom Kippur – Saturday, Sept. 14, has maintained close relationships with several members of the Jewish community, including Israeli rabbi and kabbalist Yishayahu Yosef Pinto, whom he consulted with in 2010, and Ohio businessman and philanthropist Jay Schottenstein – funder of ArtScroll’s Talmud translation – whom he nominated for TIME Magazine’s TIME 100 list of most influential people. Despite their ties to the basketball superstar, however, the Jewish holiday made it impossible for them to attend the nuptials – if they were invited.
