Sarkozy's Son May Convert to Judaism


Jean Sarkozy, the son of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, may convert to Judaism to please his Jewish fiancée Jessica Sebaoun, according to the London Telegraph. She is an heiress to a family that owns one of France's largest appliance chain stores.

She reportedly is serious about her religion, and the Telegraph said the younger Sarkozy is "brushing up on his Hebrew and discussing conversion with senior rabbis." The couple recently visited Israel in order to get a closer look at Judaism.
