New York Kicks power forward Amar’e Stoudemire may have advanced a new Jewish fashion trend as he was recently pictured sporting a Star of David rosary.

The image, posted on Twitter by the NBA pictures the basketball star with fiancée Alexis Welch.

“It is becoming a real trend,” Brian Belasquez, marketing analyst at HotBuckles.com a fashion accessories website that sells the Jewish rosaries told The Algemeiner.

“We tried it as a test because one of our suppliers listed them, and they just started moving,” he said. “Within the year we have seen great rises in the sales and it’s a constant flow of sales.”

“I am pretty sure there is going to be an even greater increase” he concluded.

The term ‘rosary’ comes from the Latin rosarium, meaning ‘garland of roses,’ and denotes the prayer beads used to count the series of prayers that make up the rosary Roman Catholic Marian devotion.

Stoudemire has claimed to have Jewish roots on his mother’s side of the family, saying in a 2010 interview, “I have been aware since my youth that I am a Hebrew through my mother, and that is something that has played a subtle but important role in my development.” He visited Israel that year.

    Does the world love art more than Jesus Christ? Before one answers that, remember (Matthew 15:11). *John 1:19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? *Genesis 27:32 And Isaac his father said unto him, Who art thou? And he said, I am thy son, thy firstborn Esau. (Hebrews 12:16). The Levite priest and the Lord (Numbers 2:33 equals Hebrews 7:14). Dan is the serpent by the way. From 1st Samuel 10:19 to Revelation 7:5

    Heritage is one thing and culture is another. Take away Jacob’s heritage, and what is left for Israel twelve tribes but Esau culture! Remember they were twins one hated, one loved, two nations, two manners of people. *1st Samuel 10:25 Then Samuel told the people the manner of the kingdom, and wrote it in a book, and laid it before the Lord. And Samuel sent all the people away, every man to his house. *Jeremiah 36:2 *(Revelation 19:12)

  • Awesome! Love that he is proud of his heritage! Sheesh, wish I could get him to wear some of my work, http://www.alefbet.com
