Pop star Justin Bieber spent three hours meeting with a rabbi in Los Angeles.

Bieber on Wednesday visited the Westside Jewish Community Center, the celebrity news website X17.com reported.

The singer “is on a spiritual journey,” according to X17, and reportedly has stopped using drugs and gotten rid of his entourage.

Bieber reportedly was scheduled to spend two weeks with a Christian pastor but apparently cut short his visit. The Christian Post reported that he was “learning how to spread the Word of God.”

Though raised primarily in his mother’s Christian faith, Bieber’s has a connection to the Tribe through his on-again-off-again father, Jeremy, who is Jewish. The pair snapped a pic while on a 2011 trip to Israel, showcasing their matching Hebrew tattoos.

In April 2013, Bieber was criticized for writing in the guestbook at the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam that he hoped she “would have been a Belieber.” He visited the museum before playing a concert in nearby Arnhem.
