Like An Unorthodox Virgin

Some rabbis in Israel are having a hissy fit because Madonna — or is it Esther now? — is including a song on her next album about the founder of her beloved Kabbalah, 16th-century Jewish mystic Rabbi Isaac Luria. The orthodox religious leaders who have their yarmulkes all in a knot say the song, titled Isaac, is blasphemous. Actually, it’s the latest in a string of Jewish rock hits. It turns out that Michael Jackson’s Ben was actually about David Ben Gurion, Kiss’ Beth was an ode to Temple Beth Shalom, Oops!…I Did It Again is about accidentally breaking the fast on Yom Kippur, and Madonna’s own Holiday was about celebrating Hanukkah.
