Catch­maker, catch­maker

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

JU­LIAN Edel­man, whose spec­tac­u­lar catch helped the New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots to vic­tory in the Su­per­bowl on Sun­day, is ranked by the Amer­i­can Jewish His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety as a the fourth top Jewish Amer­i­can foot­ball player of all time.

The wide re­ceiver, who has a Jewish fa­ther, de­scribed him­self in an in­ter­view five years ago as “kind of Jewish, but not re­ally”.

But in 2015, when he made his first trip to Is­rael, he said he had be­gun ex­plor­ing his her­itage over the past few years.

In the same year, Edel­man tweeted the Pe­sach mes­sage ( above) to sup­port­ers.
