Why Do Thomas Brady and Gisele Bundchen Have a Menorah?

Thomas Brady and Gisele Bundchen

Why does Thomas Brady of the Patriots have a menorah in his home? Well, there can be speculation, but maybe no answer. Why did Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden have a Jewish wedding? Who knows? Does it matter?

Mark Leibovich of the New York Times has been fascinated with the man, the player and only tangentially, with the menorah he has in his house. Liebovich writes of his desire to interview Patriot’s star Brady who “exhibited his own sheepish grace within the parochial madhouse of Boston sports.”

While describing Brady’s entire home, his career, and even what Brady likes to eat, usually healthy offerings like kale and raw desserts, Liebovich describes a picture he once saw in the office of Patriot’s owner Robert Kraft, was raised an Orthodox Jew, standing beside the Western Wall with Brady, both wearing yarmulkes.

When he enters the Brady’s house he notices a shelf in which a large glass menorah is displayed, “We’re not Jewish, ” Brady was talking about himself and his wife, Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen, “But I think we are into everything. I don’t know what I believe. I think there’s a belief system, I’m just not sure what it is, ” as reported by the New York Times.

Brady, who was raised Catholic, did get rather deep on 60 Minutes after winning his third Superbowl in 2005. He told Steve Kroft, “Maybe a lot of people would say, ‘Hey man, this is what it is, I’ve reached my goal. Me, I think, God, it’s got to be more than this.”
