Sopranos’ star visits Israel


One of the stars of “The Sopranos” is exploring her Jewish roots in Israel.

Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who played Tony Soprano’s daughter, Meadow, in the award-winning American television mob drama, is taking part in the current birthright israel tour, Yediot Achronot reported Wednesday.

According to the newspaper, Sigler, 25, has a Jewish-born father and a mother who converted to Judaism.

Sigler’s participation in the birthright israel events elicited minimal media scrutiny. While she has been impressed by the Jewish state, the actress has no plans to immigrate, Yediot reported.
