Ashton Kutcher is on his way to Israel.

The Hollywood heartthrob, best known for his role as loveable goofball Kelso on “That 70’s Show,” is a devoted follower of Kabbalah and has made several visits to the Holy Land as part of his practice. He currently stars in the slapstick CBS sitcom “Two and a Half Men,” filling the role vacated by Charlie Sheen after that star’s much-publicized meltdown in 2011.

Kutcher and ex-wife Demi Moore have for years attended education and training at the Los Angeles Kabbalah Center, and Kutcher is known to study privately at home in Hollywood with Kabbalah Center founder Rabbi Yehuda Berg.

Sources in the entertainment industry say Kutcher will arrive in Israel next week and it is believed he will be traveling with his girlfriend Mila Kunis, whom FHM magazine recently named the world’s sexiest woman. Kunis, who is of Ukrainian Jewish descent, is not an adherent of Kabbalah, but she was spotted attending a handful of Kabbalah ceremonies with Kutcher back in October.

In past trips to Israel, Kutcher has first spent time at the Kabbalah Center in Tel Aviv, located just behind Gan Ha’Ir on Benami Street, and then continued on to the International Center for Tzefat Kabbalah.

Rabbi Eyal Reiss, director of the Tzefat center, said Kutcher’s people have not yet committed to a stopover in the ancient mystical city, but that in the past he has only been notified 24 hours ahead of time and he expects this trip to be no different. “He is discreet for reasons we can all understand,” said Reiss.
