Jon Gosselin‘s got a lot going on right now, so he’s bound to be asking for some advice on how to deal with his fall from reality TV grace. But is he looking to a higher power to guide him?
HollywoodLife.com reports that the dad of eight asked a panel, including Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel, Dr. Mehmet Oz, and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, “how to regain control of his personal life and family,” while in front of 1,000 people on Sunday at Central Synagogue.
According to the report, Jon asked the public experts for their opinion on”how to teach his kids real values in light of the divorce he’s going through.”
A source tells HollywoodLife.com that Elie told Jon to “teach your kids values, not to be selfish and not get carried away with being famous.” Rabbi Shmuley told Jon to “dedicate time for his kids without distractions” and Dr. Oz said the kids should learn to “have respect for others.”
Rabbi Shmuley told HollywoodLife.com, “He came as our participant, and he came without Hailey. It was a great forum … I believe that Jewish values can help people going through a divorce. I told him to be a responsible father before a celebrity.”
