Jews in Sports

The Genesis Prize Foundation created the video "Jews in Sports" as shown below to honor Jewish achievements in sports and athletics over the years:

As stated on the group’s website, “the vision of the Genesis Prize is a strong and vibrant Jewish people, aware of its roots while looking to the future; a Jewish community flourishing in diversity, yet united in appreciation of Jewish values and support for the Jewish State.”

Whereas some of the other Genesis Prize videos honoring Jewish achievements premiered years earlier, "Jews in Sports" first aired at the 2019 Genesis Prize Ceremony in honor of Robert Kraft was the then-owner of the six-time Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots football team. Some athletes featured in the video include Julian Edelman, David Beckham, Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko, Aly Raisman, Tal Brody, Hank Greenberg, Yuri Lyapkin, Irina Viner, Garry Kasparov, and others as well.
