Schooling Baby Beckham

David Beckham said recently that he considers himself “half-Jewish,” and Victoria Beckham (aka Posh Spice) claims no such roots. But the power couple will be sending their youngest son, 3-year-old Cruz, to a Jewish pre-school in Los Angeles, the British tabloid The Sun reports. However, the Beckhams do not plan to raise their children as Jews. The soccer star is not a practicing Jew, but his mother’s family is Jewish, and he has a biblical phrase, “I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine, that shepherds among the lilies,” tattooed on his arm in Hebrew, next to “Victoria,” in Hindi.
