Welcome to Kaplan’s Korner, a blog devoted to Jews and sports. Formerly connected with the New Jersey Jewish News, I’ve now “gone rogue” and will be handling things myself with the generous assistance of Rabbi Jason Miller.
I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of the old joke:
“What’s the thinnest book in the world?”
“Jewish sports heroes.”
Don’t you believe it. There have been plenty, in all aspects of sport (well, maybe not rodeo, but I’ll keep looking).
This blog will keep you up-do-date on who’s who in the world of Jewish sports, from athletes to executives. We’ll also keep you informed on books and websites of interest, so check back often.
Can I get a sheheheyanu?
