The Washington Wizards celebrated “Jewish Heritage Night” at last night’s game. The Wizards’ second-year Israeli small forward Deni Avdija was the star of the show, appearing in several videos during the timeouts, including one listing his favorite places in Israel.

Israeli pop star Noa Kirel’s music was blasting on the loudspeakers during player warm-ups.

The Wizards’ starting lineup appeared in Hebrew letters on the jumbotron, and Israeli flags were sprinkled throughout the crowd.

On-court performances included dance numbers from Avirah Israeli Dance Company and Dance Yesodot, and the national anthem was sung by Temple Rodef Shalom member Arianna Zuckerman. Throughout the game, Jewish facts were displayed across the video board, including the meaning behind the two stripes in the Israeli flag and a description of babka.

More than 120 leaders from the entertainment industry have signed an open letter released by the non-profit entertainment industry organisation Creative Community For Peace in support of the Sydney Festival and participating artists.


The open letter comes in response to attempts by anti-Israel activists to boycott the #SydneyFestival because the Israeli Embassy in #Australia is sponsoring the performance of a world-renowned Israeli dance ensemble.

The entertainment leaders stand united in rejecting the cultural boycott of #Israel as yet another roadblock to peace and its subversion of art for nefarious political purposes.

When asked how his Jewishness has impacted his life and acting career, “Spider-Man” star Andrew Garfield said, “The first thing I’d go to is empathy…Because of the ancestral memory of what it is to be persecuted, of what it is to be told that you don’t belong on this earth, that there’s a physical threat of violence and extermination, and how deeply moving it is that we have survived that threat, that can only enhance our empathy for anyone else going through that same kind of injustice and threat of physical annihilation.”
