This chapter examines the participation of Jewish Americans in professional basketball during the period from 1900 to 1950 in the U.S. Most of these athletes first learned basketball in neighborhood school yards and Jewish community centers before becoming college athletes, and eventually professional players. This chapter discusses the role of the City College of New York (CCNY) as the breeding ground of Jewish American basketball players.
