The mother of NBA MVP Stephen Curry said a trip to Israel 5 years ago transformed her spirituality, and sparked her interest in Judaism and learning Hebrew.

Sonya Curry responded to interview questions Sunday night after her son’s win in Game 5 of the NBA finals, calling her son’s success the result of “grace and favor.”

Curry’s Golden State Warriors currently have a 3-2 lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers, coached by Israeli-American David Blatt, and led by basketball all-star LeBron James.

After Sonya’s recent interest in Hebrew, the entire Curry family, including Stephen and his wife, have gotten tattoos in Hebrew. After showing an interviewer her tattoo which reads “chen,” meaning grace, Sonya began discussing her trip to Israel, where she “was just transformed by the spirituality.”
