Actress Goldie Hawn on Her Jewish Faith: ‘I’m Very Proud of My Tribe’

Actress Goldie Hawn expressed pride in being Jewish in a recent interview in which she discussed her faith, parenting and her son’s near-death experience as a baby.

The 71-year-old “Snatched” star told People magazine in its latest cover story that her oldest son — Oliver Hudson — almost died at 1-day-old due to birth complications. Hawn recalled seeing Oliver in the intensive care unit and putting her hand on her newborn son as she prayed for God to heal him. That same moment, Hawn recounted, Oliver’s heartbeat began to go up.

“I don’t think there’s any question that prayer can work,” Hawn said. “I’m a very spiritual person. I’m not a religious person, although I was raised Jewish and I like my tribe, but that was a beautiful thing. It was phenomenal. I just emptied myself. I don’t know how to explain it.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
