According to the New York Daily News gossip page, Amar’e Stoudemire of the New York Knicks “is interested in opening a Hebrew school, which would focus on teaching the language and Jewish history. The insider says the idea appears to be on the back burner for the time being but that Stoudemire has discussed it seriously.”

Another source told the Daily News that Amar’e is “always looking for ways to improve education and resources for all children,” but “no school of any kind is currently in the works.”

A Stoudemire Hebrew school wouldn’t be as surprising as it sounds. Amar’e visited Israel last summer, has a Star of David tattoo and dressed up as King Solomon for Halloween this year.
