Tal Brody Visits KSDS

Today, many KSDS students had the honor of hearing from Tal Brody, the current Goodwill Ambassador of Israel and famed American-Israeli Basketball star. Tal spoke to our students about growing up playing basketball in the US at the high school and collegiate level, and his decision to pass up an NBA career to play for the Maccabi Tel Aviv team in Israel. He explained how he and his teammates were able to rally support and draw international attention to Israel through basketball. After beating the Russian team in the 1977 European Cup Championship, Brody stood up for Israel saying, “We are on the map! And we are staying on the map– not only in sports, but in everything.” We are so grateful to Tal Brody for visiting KSDS.
