The History of the Jewish Sports Hall of Fame of Western Pennsylvania

The Jewish Sports Hall Of Fame of Western Pa was founded in 1982 with a dual mission:
To financially support Jewish related sports programs in Western Pennsylvania and Israel and to find Jewish men and women with connections to Western Pennsylvania who haveachieved a high level in athletic competition, or with prestigious careers that are closely related to the sports field, and to honor them with induction into our Hall of Fame.

All contributions, membership fees and proceeds from the annual banquet are distributed to youth sports organizations in the Pittsburgh area and in Israel.

The Jewish Sports Hall of Fame supports the following programs: EKC Sports Equipment, Indoor Triathlon, J&R Day Camp, Maccabi Youth Games, Membership and Program Scholarships, Sailfish Swim Team, and Camping and Early Childhood Development Center at the South Hills Center.

All revenues generated are used to benefit youth sports programs in Western Pennsylvania and Israel.
