This “are celebrities Jewish?” thing has gone too far now, with “Equus” audience members identifying Daniel Radcliffe as a member of the tribe by noting a distinctive alteration to his, er, magic wand. (Daniel’s mom is Jewish and dad is not.)

I could have lived very happily without knowing whether certain actors are circumcised or not. In fact, I would like to spend zero time contemplating anyone’s bris status, let alone that of celebrities, and this is certainly true for 17-year-olds who play wizards in children’s movies. And as for people who go to see plays to ogle an underage wizard’s equipment? Yuck.

At any rate, I guess they’ll have to take the “hog” out of Hogwarts now.
