A Streisand who wears tefillin

By Simon Rocker, May 24, 2012

Barbra Streisand's cousin, Dale, has turned to Israel's Supreme Court to help him make aliyah. Last year his application to settle in Israel with his Philippines-born wife and daughter was rejected, reportedly because his Facebook page had a link to a Christian messianic group.

Mr Streisand was once involved with Hari Krishna but is said to have returned to Judaism. He lays tefillin and prays three times a day, says his lawyer.
