Visiting pop idol Madonna toasted the Jewish new year with Israeli President Shimon Peres and declared herself an ''ambassador for Judaism,'' on Saturday evening.
''You don't know how popular the Book of Splendor is among Hollywood actors,'' Madonna told Peres. ''Everyone I meet talks to me only about that. I am an ambassador for Judaism.'' Other celebrities who flew in for the event included movie star Demi Moore and her husband, actor Ashton Kutcher, ex-talk show host Rosie O'Donnell and fashion designer Donna Karan, who is Jewish.
