Jewish National Football League team owner Robert Kraft will see his New England Patriots in their ninth Super Bowl since 2000.

The Patriots, led by quarterback Tom Brady, on Sunday defeated the Kansas City Chiefs, 37-31, in overtime in the AFC Championship Game in Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.

It is the team’s 11th Super Bowl appearance overall. It has won the big game five times under Kraft’s stewardship.

The Patriots will face the Los Angeles Rams, who defeated the New Orleans Saints on Sunday 26-23 in overtime.

Kraft bought the team 25 years ago in 1994.

Over decades, the Kraft family has given more than half a billion dollars to causes including health care, education, the Jewish community, Christian organizations and local needs."
