Nissim Black and Amar’e Stoudemire are famous Black Jewish converts who have completely turned their lives around. Listen to this!
Two Inspiring Black Jewish Converts
Nissim Black is a rapper who converted to Judaism after a long journey of searching for truth. He grew up with drugs and gangs. Black did a total turnaround and still raps but about Judaism and G-d instead of topics we don’t want our children listening to. Amar’e Stoudemire was a famous professional basketball player in the NBA, and after finding out at a young age about some Jewish roots that he had, he was interested in learning more. That took him on a journey to eventually become “Yehoshafat” years and years later. These are just two of the more famous Black Jewish converts, although there are more.
What is so inspiring is hearing how they cling to the truth. They both left behind lives that they realized were not as meaningful. They both found religion and G-d, and now they speak about their experiences and inspire others.
We all have the potential to find the truth in our lives and push through to hold on to it. If these to Jewish converts can totally change their lives around, so can we. G-d gave us all potential and all our own set of challenges.
We don’t have to be in the spotlight to make a difference in our own lives or the lives of others. We just have to search for G-d and the truth and let that guide us.
