Rabbi Tom Hanks Dances at Scooter Braun's Jewish Wedding

RABBI TOM HANKS? No, Tom Hanks is not playing a rabbi in his next movie. However, video and photos of Tom Hanks wearing a white kippah (yarmulke) and a fake tallit (Jewish prayer shawl) are all over the Internet thanks to Justin Bieber.

Bieber was at the Jewish wedding of his long-time manager Scooter Braun in Whistler over the weekend. It looked like quite the party and Justin Bieber uploaded video of Tom Hanks dancing to the classic ‘90s song "This is How We Do It". From Bieber's Instagram account the video quickly went viral and was reported on by several entertainment television shows and celebrity websites.

Bieber has more than 17 million followers on Instagram. He captioned the video: "Haha Tom Hanks singing 'This Is How we do it' dressed like a Rabbi lol #thatdancetho".

Scooter Braun is 33 and his new wife is 27. Yael is the CEO of F--- Cancer, an organization she founded after her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer back in 2009.

Other celebrities in attendance at Scooter Braun's wedding to cancer activist Yael Cohen in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada, over the Fourth of July weekend included Tom Hanks, his wife Rita Wilson, Sophia Bush, Carly Rae Jepsen and Ed Sheeran.
