Madonna's Son Rocco Bar-Mitvahed

Can you picture Madonna and Guy Ritchie dancing the hora?

This is what one can only hope happened after their son Rocco was bar-mitzvahed on July 13 at the Kabbalah Center in New York.

Madonna celebrated her boy’s transition to manhood by posting a picture on Instagram. “We finish the last letter of the Torah for Rocco”s Bar Mitzva,” the caption reads. “Lucky 13! Happy Birthday! Potential……….responsibility!!!!”

The party train continued on to [Bklyn Beast,]( (http://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/79571227.html ‘Bklyn Beast,’) New York’s Parkour training ground.

The diva, who gave birth to Rocco in August 2000, has been a student of Kabbalah since the 1990s.

The jury is still out on whether or not this can actually be considered a bar-mitzvah (neither Madonna nor Guy Ritchie are Jewish) but in the meantime — Mazel Tov, Rocco!
