Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown owns an enormous mansion in Fort Lauderda le, Florida. Inside, along with the dozen bed- rooms and private movie theater, sits an in-home synagogue. Brown isn’t Jewish, but he showed off the house (more accurately, one of his many houses) and impressive sneaker collection in an interview with Complex magazine. “I got a lot of Jewish friends, and a synagogue is where you bless up,” he said. The house originally was built by Yizhak and Liat Toledano. Brown bought the property from Yizhak, an Israeli-born real estate developer, in 2016. The house also contains a station for ritual hand washing, or netilat yadaim, connected to a dining room, and three kitchens, which according to the Times of Israel were kept ko- sher under the Toledanos’ ownership. Brown, who has been one of the league’s best receivers over the last half decade, might not have been im- provising when he said he has many Jewish friends. He has shown affinity for Jews before, notably wishing the world a happy Rosh Hashanah on Twitter in 2012. He was a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars” in 2016, right after he bought the house, and was asked about the synagogue. His interview er said that he should dance the hora with his partner on TV. “That’ d be dope!” he laughed. “I like that, you got good vision!”

“These days, Jerusalem is blessed with many gifts,” the prime minister said. “We received another one yester- day evening, with Netta’s suspenseful and shining victory. The gift was that Eurovision will be coming to Jerusalem next year, and we are proud to be host- ing it.” Israel’s victory , its first since 1998, means it won the right to host next year’s finals, which, in the intervening decades, have transformed into a mas- sive extravaganza with two rounds, tens of thousands of fans, and millions more tuning in around the world. Barzilai ended her acceptance speech in Lisbon with the well-known phrase, “Next year in Jerusalem.” While the Eurovision final was taking place, Netanyahu had tweeted, “Netta, kapara alayich,” which was Barzilai’s blessing to her fans at the end of each performance. In colloquial Hebrew, it is a pet name meaning “darling” or “sweetie,” but the Bing translation tool within Twitter misunderstood the word “kapara” to be “para” — and translated the phrase as “Netta, you’re a cow”
