It is often stated incorrectly that Hall of Famer Rod Carew converted to Judaism, although it is true that he married a Jewish woman and they raised their children as Jews. This misconception was most famously perpetuated in two works:

  • A 1976 Esquire magazine article, "All-Time All-Star Argument Starter", by sportswriter Harry Stein, himself Jewish. Stein named Carew as the starting second baseman on his All-Jewish team.
  • "The Chanukah Song" by Jewish American comedian and actor Adam Sandler. He explicitly stated in his original 1994 version that Carew converted to Judaism, and Sandler has perpetuated this in later versions of the song.

Track and field[edit]

  • Gerry Ashworth — World record holder — 100 yards, 100 meters — 1964 Olympic track athlete-gold medal[73]
  • Louis Clarke — Olympic gold medal, 4X100-meter relay[73]
  • Lillian Copeland — 1932 Olympic gold medalist in the discus
  • Hugo Friend — long jump, Olympic bronze medal[73]
  • James Fuchs — shot put, Olympic bronze medal[73]
  • Daniel Frank — long jump, Olympic silver medal[73]
  • Marty Glickman — Sprinter/Gridiron (American football) Player/Sportscaster[233]
  • Milton Green — was the world record holder in the high hurdles in the 1930s. He was considered sure to make the Olympic team in 1936, but chose not to participate in protest of the event being held in Nazi Germany.
  • Clare Jacobs — Bronze medal, Olympic pole vault[73]
  • Deena Kastor — Olympic Bronze medalist in marathon 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens,long-distance runner[234]
  • Abel Kiviat — middle-distance runner[235]
  • Margaret Bergmann Lambert — US Champion in high jump, 1937–38, and shotput, 1938. Gretel Bergmann, a Jew from Laupheim, Germany, was one of the leading high jumpers in Europe, destined for the 1936 Berlin Olympics. After the rise of Hitler, she (like all German Jews) was barred from sporting events that included non-Jewish athletes. This led to her emigration, in 1934, to England, where she won the British high jump championship in 1935. On the same day, she learned that, to avoid retribution on her family from the Nazis, she would be forced to return to Germany to train with other Olympic candidates — part of an attempt by Germany to avoid an international boycott of the games. Bergmann trained with the German Olympic team until two weeks before the games, tying the German record in high jump in the process — then received a letter dropping her from the team, supposedly for subpar performance. The following year, Bergmann emigrated to New York, where she excelled in track & field until stopping her career with the onset of World War II. Still living in New York, she is the subject of the frequently aired HBO documentary "Hitler's Pawn."[236]
  • Alvah Meyer — Silver medal, 100 meter dash, 1912 Olympics[73]
  • Tamara Press — Olympic Gold Medalist shot putter
  • Myer Prinstein — Olympic jumper (4g1s)[237][238]
  • Steve Seymour — javelin throw, Olympic Silver medal[73]

So Davis became known as Bummy, though he was not a bum, either as a boxer or as a person. His tragic — and violent — death was indicative of the way he lived his life. In 1945, at the age of 25, Davis was fatally shot to death while coming to the defense of a barkeep during a robbery attempt.</r>[25]

Gregory recently spoke to the Connecticut Jewish Ledger about her religious background: "We [my brother and I] were brought up with the feeling that you have to believe in G-d. You have to believe in right and wrong. The rest they kind of left up to us. We celebrated everything-Christmas, Hanukkah, all the Jewish holidays, Easter. They taught us both traditions. Then when we got older they said whatever we chose and whatever we wanted was good with them. I identify that my heritage is Jewish. I feel proud of it."

It made me realize how fulfilling and enriched Jewish culture really is," Bornstein said. "So in the past couple years, I've felt more Jewish than ever." His father is Jewish and his mother is a non-Jew from Mexico. Bornstein grew up celebrating Passover and Rosh Hashanah with relatives.
