    The controversial actress is also an Orthodox Jew.

    Her father is a notorious radio personality; she once performed in the nude; but now, she would rather be studying Torah.

    Meet Emily Stern, the infamous eldest daughter of Howard Stern whose passion for Judaism eventually led her to become an emerging Orthodox figure.

    The 32-year-old actress, poet and Torah scholar, who was raised in a Reform household on Long Island, always felt connected to her religion but did not understand the full capacity of its practices.

    “I had a desire, really to actually find a community and a world that actually resonated with me,” she told Allison Josephs in a web-based radio interview for the popular blog, “Jew in the City.” “It felt important for me to do that.”

    It was not until after she graduated from NYU and faced both the internal struggle of her parents’ divorce and the public embarrassment of a director’s decision to leak explicit photographs from her role in an earlier theater performance, that Stern sought out a stronger religious identity.

    And she found it - in a Jewish Renewal havdalah ceremony in a yoga studio.

    “I walked into my first havdalah ceremony … and I had never seen something ritual and the way it was relating to the world in such a grounded way,” said Stern on “Jew in the City.” “It really gave me an opportunity to begin to relate to matter in a way that was authentic for me.”

    After her initial encounter with a traditional religious services, which was hosted by Manhattan-based Romemu, Stern began to participate in Judaism through a variety of creative means. She wrote a play as part of an art fellowship at the Upper West Side Seminary Drisha Institute, wrote a children’s songbook based on Perek Shira (an ancient Jewish text), and now is curating a photography project called “The Wells of Miriam” that is based on the Jewish ritual of mikvah.

    As Stern explained on “Jew in the City,” such opportunities allow the actress-author to merge her independent Jewish and artistic identities.

    “I feel like I’ve really found two ways of expressing my soul in the world authentically. Which is through halacha and also through sharing my art."

    Howard asked Ben if he and his wife are going to become Scientologists like so many other Hollywood actors have done. Christine said she sure wouldn't but Ben said he was kind of curious about it because they all seem so happy. Howard said he doesn't single out that wacky religion to goof on. He said that he feels sorry for anyone who gets duped by any religion.

    Clearly she is searching for something she did not get at home.

    I kind of envy her as she has the resources at the age of 32 to continue to discover herself and fulfill her personal identity and spiritual issues and needs. It would seem that her interests are not being subverted by the path typical 30 something's are following such as struggling to pay rent, get a family together, mortgages, saving for college etc. God, it must be unbelievable to be so rich and never have to worry about the basic things of life and just concern oneself with your own self-fulfillment and gratification.

    Must be nice to never have to work a hard day in your life.

    I'd be plenty spiritual too if I didn't have to worry about paying the mortgage and all the bills each month.

    Good for her, you all seem rather jealous that Emily was born into a rich family but remember money does not buy happiness. At least she isn't a degenerate whore like other celebrity daughters.

    Hopefully she'll find a nice orthodox Jewish man with a beer can fhick cock so Howie can be proud of his son in law.

    Howard said that he did that Joan Rivers eulogy and he got some accolades for that. Howard said that there was a Rabbi (Potasnik) on WABC radio saying he was disgusting. Howard said that this wasn't the Rabbi from the temple they were at. Howard said the guy there was giggling. Howard said he was describing some of Joan's funny moments and the guy was laughing. Howard said he thinks that religion is the cause of most of the problems in this world.


    better?

    It's the parents. It's always the parents that kids rebel against.

    If your parents are religious lunatics, chances are you're going out smoking dump and sleeping around.

    If you dad likes to throw bologna at the naked asses of strippers, chances are you turn out an orthodox Jew.
