Last Friday, March 25, retired Israeli basketball star David Blu spoke to more than 400 Jewish young professionals, JNF board members and donors at JNFuture’s second annual “Shabbat in the Desert” event. Blu, a California native, spent over a decade playing professional basketball for the Israeli national team, the European League, for Maccabi Tel Aviv, and a brief stint in the NBA, among other teams. Jewish News caught up with Blu to ask him about JNF, playing basketball in and for Israel, and his views on the state of Judaism today.
