This chapter examines the college life and college sport participation of Jewish Americans in the U.S. prior to World War II. Jewish college students who participated in intercollegiate athletics played a special role in this college experience by serving a spectrum of contradictory interest. The accomplishments of these athletes gave hope to the Jewish people that it was possible for them achieve real success without abandoning or denying ethnic attachments.
