The Top 2 Jewish Basketball Players Today Talk Judaism, Identity & Practice

Updated: Aug 20

The best Israeli to ever play in the NBA - Omri Casspi, and the best American to ever play in Israel - NBA All-Star Amare Stoudemire (who is converting to Judaism), sit down for a conversation about being Jewish, identity, practice, Torah, meaning and a little basketball.


Amare: "It helps me to control my anger, control my thoughts, control my speech, guard my eyes. These lessons that I'm learning along the way are helping me to become a better man and that's ultimately what I'm all about."


Omri: "I felt embarrassed when I got to the US that I knew nothing about Judaism. I [just] knew the basics. I said you know right, it's just not right. I got to do better."


As a tour guide of Israel, one of my favorite things to do is to take people to see an Israeli sporting event, as while the game might be the same, the atmosphere is totally foreign. For more on that, check out my arts and culture tours here: https://www.tourguideofisrael.com/arts-culture-tours
