The Northern California Jewish Sports Hall Of Fame was established to:
  • Communicate to the public the contributions Jewish sports figures have made to the quality of life throughout the world
  • Educate the public of the contributions Northern California Jewish Sports figures have made to our community
  • Recognize and celebrate the induction of professional Jewish athletes, high school athletes, and community members into the Northern California Jewish Sports Hall of Fame and its associated award programs
  • Provide support, mentoring, and assistance for Jewish youth participating in sports
  • Forge positive relationships with diverse organizations and individuals promoting the value of sports in our daily lives
  • Deter anti-Semitism by responding to extremism without being extreme, encourage educational campaigns, and raise the consciousness of people worldwide.

The Northern California Jewish Sports Hall of Fame is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all-volunteer organization. There is no paid staff or administrative costs. We derive all of our revenue from sponsors, vendors, donations, event revenue, and charitable grants. We rely completely on members and volunteers for the time they devote to the events we present.

Our tax ID number is: 26-0493232

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.  Sports have historically played a role in shaping the Jewish character.  To the great extent that Jews are involved in sports as players, broadcasters, managers, owners and fervent fans needs to be acknowledged and celebrated.  Shared interest in sports can be a great unifier as people from diverse backgrounds find common ground.  Our Hall of Fame has evolved to the point where its Board is set to take on new challenges to make an even greater impact through sports to the quality of life in Northern California.
