Israeli top model and television host Bar Refaeli attended a Hanukka candle lighting ceremony Monday night led by celebrity-favored Rabbi Chaim Horowitz at the home of businessman David Halperin in Bnei Brak.

The event included dinner and a lecture about the Jewish holiday given by Rabbi Horowitz, where Rafaeli's husband Adi Ezra reportedly took heavy interest by raising issues and asking several questions.

Other signs of Refaeli and her husband making strides closer to religion were seen this past year, including being spotted more than once at Halperin's residency the previous time to attend an event for the Sukkot holiday in the fall.

Halperin is well known for being close to celebrities and often hosts famous Israelis that want to experience Judaism first hand.
