Nets misspell the Hebrew on their own Jewish Heritage Night


The Brooklyn Nets celebrated Hanukkah Thursday night for their game against the Philadelphia 76ers with a whole bunch of Judaism-themed activities. They even had a game between kids and Rabbis at halftime.

That’s all well and good, but they did have one tiny faux pax. They were selling shirts saying “Represent Brooklyn” in Hebrew, but the Hebrew was misspelled.

The error eventually was spotted and the Nets took down the picture from their Twitter account. The Brooklyn Game pointed out that the second word (“גציימ”) should actually read “מייצג.”

Good thing no Jewish people live in Brooklyn right?
