Jews in the Greater Hartford area have long been active in sports, whether at school or in clubs, formally or self-organized. Some played for the experience or to fill time, others had the talent, drive and support to compete or participate at the national, international and professional levels. Members of our community have pursued sports as athletes or as managers, agents, promoters, writers, broadcasters, coaches and student advocates. Now you can search the list of inductees by sport, year inducted, role or name. We will be uploading each person’s biography and any photos in our collection soon.

There are 86 honorees of the Jewish Sports Hall of Fame, representing sports activity from the earliest days of the 20th century into the early aughts of the 21st. If you have any information about anyone (please don’t assume we already have it) you can email us. If you have photos or videos, let us know that and we’ll arrange to add those to our collection.
