As a fifth generation San Franciscan of the Jewish faith, I am extremely proud of the progress that the Northern California Jewish Sports Hall of Fame has made. Our organization has made great strides in implementing its mission and fulfilling what I feel is its unique destiny. There are 14 Jewish Halls of Fame in the United States, but until now, none in Northern California, an area rich in the storied contributions Jews have made through sports to the quality of life of all our citizens. That the “People of the Book” have and do excel at sports may come as somewhat of a surprise to the general public since other aspects of Jewish achievement may be more recognized. Enthusiasm for sports seems ingrained in the Jewish character and the tradition of honoring those in the community who have achieved prominence in the world of athletics can now be fulfilled by each of us through the programs of the NCJSHOF.
