In case you didn't know, the 37-year-old identifies as Jewish. HOWEVER, he grew up in a secular household and missed out on certain cultural traditions.

Including having a bar mitzvah!

Well no need to worry because his BFF Seth Rogen is coming to the rescue!

On October 17, Rogen and his wife Lauren Miller Rogen are throwing the bash at the Hollywood Palladium all in the name of charity!

The funnyman and his beau started Hilarity for Charity to promote awareness of Alzheimer's disease after his mother was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's at age 55.

According to the Knocked Up actor:

"Ever since I've known James, he's been talking about wanting a bar mitzvah. We're excited to see him finally become a man while also helping us raise awareness and funds for people living with Alzheimer's and towards research that will lead to a cure. And in celebration we'll also have a mohel and a live bris for James at the event."

On Wednesday, Franco went on his Instagram to promote the religious event!

He wrote:

"You KNOW you won't want to miss this!!!… Seth Rogen and the Gang are going to throw me a Bar Mitzvah!"

To enjoy the festivities, you can buy tickets on August 11.

We just hope James knows how to read the Torah!

According to sources, the reality TV star will return to motivational speaking!

The eyewitness exclaimed:

"It was very lucrative for him in the past and now he has a whole new audience."

Reportedly, when the 65-year-old began doing speaking engagements in the 1970s, he earned around $5,000 per gig.

According to life coach Seth Rainess, he could now make triple that amount!

Raines said:

"Bruce will be in greater demand than anybody. He could make tens of thousands per engagement."

Not that the athlete will do these events solely for money.

As he told Miz Sawyer, he wants to use his celebrity to bring awareness to the transgendered community, and to help others coping with the same identity issues.

Jenner said:

"What I'm doing is going to do some good. And we're going to change the world. I really firmly believe that. We're going to make a difference in the world with what we're doing."

The inside source added:

"He is going to be a role model for the transgender community… He knows he has an important job to do."

We're so glad Bruce is hitting the road! We would totally love to hear him speak!

( From Perez: Bruce stated in the interview to use "he" and "him" so we will do so in our coverage until that changes. )
