American actor Ashton Kutcher will be returning to Israel next week, combining a
private visit with some semipublic appearances.
The Two and a Half Men
star, who replaced Charlie Sheen in 2011, will be speaking Monday night at the
“Meet the industry leaders” event hosted by GarageGeeks in Holon, together with
Guy Oseary, his partner-in-technology.
Founded by famed entrepreneur
Yossi Vardi, GarargeGeeks is a brainstorming center for software, electronics
and gaming developers.
The actor will address the gathering along with
Oseary, Madonna’s Israeli-born manager.
Kutcher and Oseary are partners
in A-Grade, a venture capital firm that has made numerous investments in
companies such as Airbnb and Spotify.
Following the business side of his
trip, Kutcher is going to spend part of Shavuot at the Kabbala Center in Tel
Aviv, according to a representative of the center. Kutcher and his ex-wife Demi
Moore are both Kabbala students and, with Madonna, have previously attended
services at the center in Tel Aviv.
Media reports have intimated that
Kutcher’s current girlfriend, actress Mila Kunis, will be accompanying him on
the trip. Kunis and Kutcher played a couple in the Fox television network comedy
The 70s Show, a role which became a self-fulfilling prophecy last year.
