Profile: Amar'e Stoudemire

Here's the Haaretz article that led to this immediately-written profile.

Thanks to Daniel from Maryland, John from Germany, and John from Boston for letting us know!

Now what's the deal with the apostrophe in the name?

Thanks to the anon commenter for this link that got Amar'e downgraded to "Barely a Jew".


  1. Not so fast, I guess...

  2. BTW, given that article, I would doubt that he even could be a halachic Jew. Most children born to interracial relationships before, say, the 1950s, were born to black women and white men. So even if his mother is correct about having a distant Jewish ancestor, it would almost certainly be a male Jewish ancestor.
