A recent Shabbat dinner at Rabbi Pinny Andrusier’s home in Hallandale, Florida, was memorable for many reasons. One was that the featured guest was 7 feet tall, towering over the dozens of kids in attendance — the adults, too. Another was that he was a player for South Florida’s favorite NBA team, the Miami Heat. The guest was Meyers Leonard, who only a few days prior to the Friday-night meal on March 12 had sparked controversy for using an antisemitic slur while livestreaming a video game on Twitch.
It was time to repair the damage. After posting a public apology on Instagram, Leonard and his representatives contacted multiple Jewish organizations to begin his healing process. Two days after using the slur, Leonard met with Andrusier, the rabbi at the Chabad of Southwest Broward in Hallandale, 18 miles from American Airlines Arena where the Heat play. Andrusier was an obvious first stop on Leonard’s rehabilitation efforts due to his long involvement with the Heat. His connections to the team date back to 1987, when he lit a Hanukkah candle at a game. “The Heat and the Jewish community have a very strong bond,” Andrusier said.

Meyers Leonard is free to stream on Twitch again — we’ve learned his ban has been lifted just over a week after he used an anti-Semitic slur during a video game session. Remember, the former Miami Heat player was playing “Call of Duty” on March 9 when he hurled the K-word at an opposing player. Twitch immediately blocked Leonard from the platform — and the NBA hit Meyers with a $50k fine and a 1-week suspension.
