The National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame and Museum is dedicated to honoring Jewish individuals that have distinguished themselves in the field of sports. The objective is to foster Jewish identity through athletics. The Jewish Sports Hall of Fame is currently located at the Suffolk Y Jewish Community Center, with plaques honoring those inducted on permanent display. This proposed addition, like a jewel amongst the existing buildings, will be the new home for the sports memorabilia. The structure will honor those individuals and glorify the Judaism in sports entirely.
