Tiffany Haddish: The ‘word of God’ is the ‘best gift’ – FOX 11 and FOX 41

Posted By on January 20, 2020

Tiffany Haddish thinks the word of God is the best gift you can give someone.

The 40-year-old actress was gifted a Bible with a diamond cross on the cover from Beyonc and Solange Knowles mother Tina Knowles Lawson during her birthday bat mitzvah last month, which she hosted to celebrate her Netflix special Tiffany Haddish: Black Mitzvah.

And although Tiffany is Jewish, she still appreciated the present she received, because she says sharing your beliefs with someone is a blessing.

She explained to Us Weekly magazine: Now that was a blessing. I think thats one of the best gifts you can ever give someone is the word of God.

I feel like thats super special and super important. I dont care if its a King James Bible, a Torah, [or] a Quran when you share your beliefs with someone, I think thats the best gift you could ever give someone because that gives them understanding and clarity.

Tiffanys Netflix special aired on the streaming service to mark her 40th birthday on December 3, and the star whose father was a Jewish refugee from Eritrea while her mother was an American Jehovahs Witness said prior to the release that she wanted to honor her heritage with the show.

She said: in a video shared to Instagram: What do you mean youre black and youre having a bat mitzvah, Tiffany? Well, I dont know if yall know this about me, but Im Jewish. Im Jewish by DNA.

And because of my father, I want to honor him and our ancestors, and I want to do something that represents growth and maturity. And I want to teach. Thats what Ive been put on this planet to do is teach, and Judaism is all about that!

Its my black mitzvah, baby! She grown, and she ready!

Meanwhile, the Night School star recently revealed she has been learning Hebrew ahead of her bat mitzvah ceremony.

She said: Im going to read from the Torah and everything.
