The #5 story of the decade is very near and dear to my heart. William Davidson, a Jewish philanthropist, owned the Detroit Pistons, Detroit Shock, and the Tampa Bay Lightening. And something miraculous happened in 2003-2004. All 3 of Davidson’s teams won their respective championships. He became the first sports owner to win 3 championships in 3 different sporting leagues. This was really an amazing accomplishment.

Davidson passed away in 2009. Besides being a sports team owner he has given so much back to the Jewish world. His interests include Israel and Jewish education. He gave millions of dollars to those two causes notably the entrance at Robinsons Arch near the Western Wall and the JTS School of Education.

William Davidson was a special human being and 2003-2004 were special years for this amazing man.

And Let Us Say…Amen.
