New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was awarded Israel’s 2019 Genesis Prize on Wednesday.

The award recognized Kraft’s philanthropy and commitment to combating anti-semitism.

The $1 million award, widely known as the “Jewish Nobel” prize, is granted each year to a person recognized as an inspiration to the next generation of Jews through professional achievement and commitment to Jewish values.

“I am honored to receive the Genesis Prize and thank the Genesis Prize Foundation for its recognition and willingness to direct my prize money to such worthy causes,” said Kraft. “It is important that we continue to support organizations that focus on combating prejudices by building bridges and uniting people of different backgrounds.”

On Instagram, wide receiver Julian Edelman shared a personal congratulatory message to Kraft.

“Since I met Mr. Kraft in 2009, he’s been such an important part of my life. He’s helped me develop as an athlete, as a Jewish person and as a friend. He always puts others first and this prestigious Genesis Prize couldn’t go to a better person” Edelman said in a photo caption.
