Justin Bieber spends three hours with L.A. rabbi

(JTA) – Pop star Justin Bieber spent three hours meeting with a rabbi in Los Angeles. Bieber on Wednesday, Nov. 19 visited the Westside Jewish Community Center, the celebrity news website reported. The singer “is on a spiritual journey,” according to X17, and reportedly has stopped using drugs and gotten rid of his entourage. The Westside JCC’s executive director did not return a call from JTA seeking confirmation of Bieber’s visit. However, an employee at IKAR – a congregation that is housed in the JCC building – said no IKAR rabbi met with Bieber. The employee added that Bieber sometimes visits the JCC to play table tennis. Bieber reportedly was scheduled to spend two weeks with a Christian pastor but apparently cut short his visit. The Christian Post reported that he was “learning how to spread the Word of God.”
