has crashed a fan's Bar Mitzvah. The Getting Jiggy With It
singer was visiting Jerusalem's Western Wall when he burst in on Atir Cohen's coming-of-age service on Thursday. The boy said: "At first I didn't know who it was. He is a very nice man, he was very excited and showed his emotions."
Cohen, 13, was in the middle of reading the Jewish holy book - the Torah - when he heard shouting and saw girls trying to get a glimpse of the Hitch
star by pushing against a barrier separating men from women.
The youngster revealed that Smith made up for the intrusion by shaking his hand and posing for a picture with him. Smith, who is on the tour of the Holy Land with actress wife Jada Pinkett Smith
, went on to carry out a traditional ceremony of putting a note in the cracks of the wall.
The Hollywood couple then toured an excavated tunnel alongside the wall, where they prayed, and ended their trip with a visit to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, built on the site where Christians believe that Jesus was crucified.
