James Franco finally became a man this weekend — with a little help from Seth Rogen and Miley Cyrus.

Rogen threw Franco a bar mitzvah celebration Saturday at the Hollywood Palladium as part of Hilarity for Charity’s fourth annual variety show. Celebs like Bill Hader and Jeff Goldblum were on hand to wish Franco mazel tov — Goldblum performed a mock circumcision onstage — and there were performances from Haim, who sang “Hava Nagila,” and Cyrus, who took to the stage with a “Shalom Y’all” cape.

The event, which was presented by Funny Or Die and livestreamed on the app go90, benefited the Alzheimer’s Association. Rogen and his wife, Lauren Miller Rogen, founded Hilarity for Charity to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer’s.
