Website record smashed

It's not midnight yet, but we are having the best-viewed day in JONJ history. Something to do with a certain player in the Super Bowl... Thanks, Julian Edelman! (Nope, still can't really call you a Jew.)

"Well, I’m not completely Jewish, if you know what I mean. I know people want me to be. My father is Jewish. My mother isn’t. I’ve been asked this before. I guess you could say I’m kind of Jewish but not really." -- Julian Edelman


  1. Except he says he's Jewish in this interview.

    So if he says he is then you should give him it.

  2. I think he was kidding about being Jewish and celebrating Hanukkah.

    Since he is 1/8th Jewish there's almost no way he (or his father, given what else we know) were raised celebrating Hanukkah.

  3. He attends High Holiday Services at my temple Shirat Hayam in Swampscott, MA. I think you may have this one wrong.

  4. As much as we love to believe anonymous internet quotes, we'd love to see some confirmation... All we have is ancestral research which clearly shows 1/8 Jewish at best, as well as that he was raised Christian.
