Former NBA Superstar Amar’e Stoudemire, Now Yehoshafat, Visits Beth Medrash Govoha

Former NBA superstar and MVP Amare Stoudemire, a ger tzedek who was megayer in 2020 and took on the name Yehoshafat, visited Beth Medrash Govoha on Wednesday to see the world’s second-largest yeshiva for the first time.

During his visit to the cathedral of Torah, Yehoshafat met HaRav Malkiel Kotler, who gave him shalom and a bracha.

Stoudemire learned b’chavrusah for an extended period of time with an avreich from Yeshivas Orchos Yosher in Bnei Brak, the kollel headed by Hagaon Harav Chaim’s Kanievsky’s oldest son, HaRav Avraham Yishayahu, before undergoing geirus.

Stoudemire played for the Suns, the New York Knicks, the Dallas Mavericks, and the Miami Heat before retiring from the NBA in 2016.
