This Black Man Appreciates The Jews

If you've got next week's (April 6) issue of Time Magazine, there's an interesting tidbit on page 2.
Basketball superstar LeBron James was asked who he would nominate for the Time 100 Most Influential People.
His answer? Jay Schottesntein.
Here's the Time blurb:
LeBron James
The NBA All-Star and Olympic gold medalist is a past TIME 100 honoree
Jay Schottenstein, an Ohio business leader and philanthropist, has supported the translation and elucidation of the Talmud Bavli into English, Hebrew and French. The Schottenstein Edition of the Talmud is now utilized by more than 2 million people worldwide.

We need this kind of love here in Teaneck. Maybe Monica Honis will endorse Rabbi Steven Pruzansky for the honor.

"This kind of love" is not helped with posts like this.
