JERUSALEM (AP) – Jay Leno is making a comeback but in Israel.
The late-night legend says he will return to Israel in June to host the award ceremony for the second annual “Genesis Prize.” Leno also hosted the inaugural ceremony last year for what is billed as “the Jewish Nobel Prize.”
The $1 million prize is being awarded to actor Michael Douglas in recognition of his passion for his Jewish heritage.
Leno, who is not Jewish, described himself as a big supporter of Israel and said he received such a warm welcome last year that he was thrilled to be invited back.
