Millions of people are expected to tune in to The Connors when it airs next month.

But Roseanne Barr won’t be one of them.

The series is a spin-off of Roseanne which returned to screens last year as part of a revival but was canceled in May as a result of racist tweets made by the comedienne.

So where will the 65-year-old be heading to when her on-screen family of John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, and Sara Gilbert return without her?

Roseanne appeared as a guest on the Rabbi Shmuley Boteach Podcast where she revealed that Israel is her destination of choice.

“I’m staying away from [the show]. I have an opportunity to go to Israel for a few months and study with my favorite teachers over there, and that’s where I’m going to go and probably move somewhere there and study with my favorite teachers. I have saved a few pennies and I’m so lucky I can go,” she said. “It’s my great joy and privilege to be a Jewish woman.”

We guess we should wish her mazeltov!
