Jewish Sports Quotes
What is so great about athletics in general or sports is that, in many ways, it does the same work that religions do. I think that’s why there is a certain compatibility. The fact of the matter is the hard work and the teamwork and the constant struggle for self-improvement is very similar to what most religious traditions teach. So they’re not mutually exclusive by any stretch of the imagination.
-- Rabbi Jonathan Siger at UFs Hillel
