Watch: Shaquille O’Neal speaks Hebrew

So a rabbi and a former NBA star walk into a trade show…

Seriously though, Michigan rabbi (and JTA contributor) Jason Miller, actually did run into Shaquille O’Neal at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last Tuesday.

Inspired by hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons‘ “Shabbat Shalom” closer at the end of an interview given at the show, and by an old TMZ video of Shaq wishing Jewish friends a “L’shana tova,” Miller decided to ask Shaq to recite some Hebrew phrases–on camera.

As Rabbi Miller noted on his blog, the basketball legend gladly obliged. Todah rabah Shaq!
