New York Knicks Star Amare Stoudemire in Israel
Amare Stoudemire is presently in Israel. As you might now, he has a tattoo of a Star of David and actually knows some Hebrew phrases. And now he wants to explore his potential Jewish roots.

On his week-long trip, the 5-time NBA all-star, Stoudemire, who just signed with the New York Knicks, plans on learning more about Israel’s language and religion. He stated that he thinks he inherited Hebrew roots through his mother Carrie.

As he explained to the Associated Press (AP) on Friday, his mother studied the history and the scriptures and believes that she is a Hebrew. He went on to explain that he was raised in a very spiritual home and said that to him, the whole thing is not about religion but rather spirituality.

Bloggers in Israel are excited about Stoudemire’s interest and expressed hopes that he may end up joining the Israeli national team. The 6-foot-10 Knicks forward, though, laughed that off and said he intends to play in the 2012 for the US.
