Jenna Jameson is converting to Judaism in order to wed her fiance, Lior Bitton, under his faith. According to Fox News, the former adult film star, 41, is already practicing new traditions and has been posting photos online. Just two years ago, however, Jenna talked to Larry King about her religion and how strongly she believed in Catholicism.
“I’m very religious. I think that we’ve come a long way religiously. I don’t think that you have to take the Bible literally… And I love being able to teach my children what it means to just believe and have the strength of faith… I’ve always been extremely Catholic. My father was Catholic, and he brought me up that way,” she said.
Jenna Jameson’s decision to convert to Judaism is somewhat surprising because of her upbringing. However, she does plan to marry Israel-born diamond dealer Bitton. While some say that she’s just in it for the money, others support Jenna and think that she’s doing the right thing by converting and supporting her man’s religious beliefs.

According to NewsOXY, Jenna said that she is studying Hebrew and that she plans on visiting Israel soon. She seems really proud of her accomplishments so far and has been chronicling parts of her journey on social media.
“I started [Shabbot] 6 months [ago]. My love is from Israel… So I have to serve the REAL deal,” Jenna said recently.
And while Jenna Jameson converts to Judaism and focuses on moving her life forward, many find themselves wondering about her new man. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Bitton has been in trouble in the past when it comes to business. He was allegedly caught in an insurance scam back in 2010.
“Bitton reported that 20 diamonds were stolen from his courier and one diamond was stolen from his store. He collected $99,000 from his insurer, but then he was caught trying to sell the diamond in Israel that he had said was stolen from the store. He pleaded guilty in 2011 and faced five days in jail, three years of probation, financial restitution, and 90 days of home confinement.”
Jenna has dated quite a bit through the years, but her relationships haven’t worked out for her thus far. Do you think her relationship with Bitton will last?
