This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the role of sport in helping East European Jewish immigrants to the U.S. during the first half of the 20th century adopt to American life. The findings reveal that the scarcity of outstanding American Jewish athletes belies the significant connections between sport and the American Jewish experience. The results also indicate that though Jewish American engagement in sport was rather short, sport played a very important role in assimilation and in the formation and meaning of Jewish and American identities.
