Director Quentin Tarantino married Israeli singer Daniela Pick under a huppah in their Beverly Hills, California, home.
The couple had a nearly decade-long transatlantic relationship that began when Tarantino was visiting Israel to promote his movie “Inglorious Basterds.” Two decades separate the couple: Tarantino is 55 and Pick is 35.
Pick is the daughter of popular Israeli singer and composer Svika Pick, who reportedly did not attend the wedding due to medical issues.
A Reform rabbi participated in the ceremony and Tarantino wore a kippah, Ynet reported.
Tarantino, who is of Italian, English and Irish ancestry, won the Academy Award for best screenplay for “Django Unchained” and “Pulp Fiction” while directing both films.

While life in Israel has returned to normal and hopes are high that Britain is set for a summer without restrictions thanks to vaccines, for billions around the world there is no such imminent light at the end of the tunnel. In the majority of countries around the globe, particularly the poorest, the vaccine rollout has barely kicked off.
That's why Jewish News, the leading source of news and opinion for the entire UK community, is throwing its full weight behind UNICEF’s VaccinAid campaign by using this platform usually reserved for encouraging donations towards our own journalism to instead urge our readers around the globe to perform the greatest mitzvah: saving a life.
We have never before done this for any charity fundraiser but it's hard to recall a campaign that affects so many people, and indeed an entire planet aching for a return to normality. Just like the Chief Rabbi and Rachel Riley, we hope to boost the mission to deliver two billion vaccines, 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits around the world by the end of this year.
Please donate as much as you can, in the spirit of the Talmudic sages: “to save one life is to save the world entire”
