The 2022 Jewish Roots of Sports will be the 11th JCRS Jewish Roots gala. The annual event has become the signature Jewish gathering in New Orleans with more than 450 patrons in attendance from across the Mid-South.

The Jewish Roots of Sports will celebrate the great achievements of Jewish athletes and professionals from across the US. This exciting and fun tribute will engage numerous sports notables – athletes, owners, professionals – in person and on video.

The event will honor three Most Valuable Players – Dr. Gayle Baer, Alan Krilov, and Dr. Mark Sands – who have all made a lasting impact on the agency. Dr. Gayle Baer and Dr. Mark Sands co-chair the JCRS Special Needs Scholarship Clinical Committee and Alan Krilov has initiated holiday outreach programs that touch hundreds of Jewish youths each year.

The event is open to all.
