Pat Dollard’s Conversion To Judaism Didn’t Take

According to Wikipedia: "Patrick Dollard is an American documentary filmmaker. In the 1990s he was a Hollywood talent agent, manager, and producer most known for guiding the career of Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh. Dollard became known as a Hollywood conservative in the mid-90s, and is now known as a conservative filmmaker, blogger, and pundit."

Evan Wright writes about Dollard for the March 2007 Vanity Fair: "Dollard was earning a reputation for intense but passing infatuations, such as the time in the early nineties when he converted to Judaism and took the name Schlomo Bin Avrihim. ("The rabbis who held my beth din," says Dollard, referring to the council that determines a candidate’s suitability for conversion, "told me afterwards that they wished all converts could reach my spiritual level." The conversion didn’t last. Dollard’s second wife, for whom he’d become a Jew, divorced him not long after his romp with hookers on the set of Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story."
