About Us

Welcome to the Southern California Jewish Sports Hall of Fame website.

The SCJSHOF was formally established in January of 1990 by a group of dedicated Southern California sportsmen and sportswomen, organized by former All-America basketball star and Los Angeles Jewish Community Centers sports director Eli Sherman.

The Hall of Fame honors men and women–– athletes, coaches, officials, media, executives, and certain others––at the professional, collegiate, high school and community levels of sports.

The Jewish Sports Hall of Fame of Southern California also supports the quadrennial World Maccabiah Games in Israel, JCC Maccabi Games, and the Allan Malamud Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Currently in our 28th year, the SCJSHOF has honored over 300 Jewish men, women and teams who have played a significant role in shaping the sports history of our community.
