There seems to be conflicting reports. Here is some recent news on the situation.
Sent in by TGR correspondent Rabbi Erez Sherman:
I am at the David Citadel…..was having shabbat
breakfast…....and Amare Stoudemire was sitting at the table next to
He was wearing a Jerusalem t-shirt, an embroidered kippah and after he got up to leave, he greeted us with “shabbat shalom!!!!!”
And this video is SICK!
BUT…..Amare seems to not be halahkically (or even have one parent) Jewish. He clearly does not answer the question directly. Below is another article claiming he is NOT Jewish.
Regardless of his religion, it is great press for Israel and the Jews. Glad to have Amare on our “team.” Maybe I will have him over for Shabbat sometime.
And Let Us Say…Amen.
