Tweet of the Day

In a moving ceremony, I today gave Israeli citizenship to Hapoel Jerusalem basketball player Amare Stoudemire, or his Hebrew name Yehoshafat. A great basketball player, a great man, a great ambassador of the State of Israel and of our capital, Jerusalem, who tied his fate with Israel. Good luck Yehoshafat!

Stoudamire recently converted to Judaism after a long connection to Israel and Judaism as someone with "Hebrew roots".

Mazel tov!

  1. If he just converted, first mazal tov.
    Second, did his wife / girlfriend convert too, or was he warned of the limited marriage market for him? If she did, why isn't she in this picture too?
