Adult film star Jenna Jameson cooks shabbat meals for her Israeli boyfriend and is slowly converting to Judaism.

Jenna Jameson is arguably one of the most recognizable names in the adult film industry, but she is in the news and on social media for a much different reason recently:  her conversion to Judaism.

Jameson, winner of 35 adult film awards, has been studying the religion and cooking full Shabbat meals, the Jerusalem Post reported.  Jameson’s boyfriend, an Israeli named Lior Bitton, is the reason for her change in religious devotion.  In the past, Jameson considered herself a devout Catholic.

But she apparently doesn’t want to disappoint Bitton with subpar meals.  “My love is from Israel…So I have to serve the REAL deal.”

Goodnight y'all

Jameson has posted pictures of her Shabbat meals on Instagram, revealing her homemade sea bass chraimeh, potato pancakes, Israeli salad and challah bread.

She is also studying Hebrew, and planning to visit Israel “very soon.”

Her fans have received her most recent social media posts with mixed reviews.  In addition to the picture of a recent Shabbat meal, Jameson has also posted pictures of a Kosher dish bubbling away in a crock pot, Kosher hamburgers (with fried eggs cooked into the middle) that she made, and even one of her in front of a local Glatt Mart, a Kosher supermarket.

This is not the first time the “Queen of Porn” has attracted attention for her exploits outside of the film industry.  Jameson is the author of two books.  One is her autobiography, How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale, and the other is an erotic novel called Sugar.

As recently as 2013, she expressed her strong ties to her Catholic faith, but it seems that now Jenna Jameson is fully committed to Judaism.
