Ashton Kutcher says “Shalom” to Israel
Aston Kutcher, the American actor who is dating one of the most gorgeous Jewish women to grace our planet, arrived in Israel on May 13th and checked in at Tel Aviv’s Dan Hotel where he will be roughing it in the hotel’s presidential suite.

The 35-year-old who starred in “That 70’s Show” along with Kunis, is in the Jewish state with his investment partner, Guy Oseary, a leading producer in the American music scene and Madonna's personal manager.

Despite rumours that Kutcher and Kunis would be making the trip together, the actress will not be joining her beau on this particular visit.

Along with Oseary, a former Israeli, the two are joint investors in the A-Grade venture capital fund, which they founded together with Ron Burkle in 2011. Their investments include Airbnb, Spotify, Path, Soundcloud, Groupon and Shazam.

Kutcher and Oseary will be meeting with Yossi Vardi, one of Israel's first high-tech entrepreneurs, and they will be looking into investment opportunities with Israeli startups, of which there are many to choose from.

As Kabbalah enthusiasts, the two men intentionally planned to be in Israel during Shavuot, and they are expected to spend some time attending the Kabbalah Center's prayers and events.

No stranger to the Holy Land, this latest visit will be Kutcher’s fifth after last traveling there with his ex-wife Demi Moore in 2010, as guests of the Kabbalah Centre.
