(Ilana Messika/TPS) Fresh off a Super Bowl victory for his New England Patriots, team owner Robert Kraft announced funding for a professional-standard football stadium outside Jerusalem. Kraft will donate $6 million to the few-hundred-seat stadium that will be situated outside Jerusalem and is slated to open later this year.

Kraft is a longtime supporter of Israel and made headlines in 2015 by holding a pre-game moment of silence for 18-year-old Ezra Schwartz, a Boston native who was murdered in Gush Etzion while studying in a post-high school yeshiva program.
