The Creator

In the summer of 2009 Jeremy was getting married. While his beautiful wife Jessica was hashing out wedding details, Jeremy started a blog combining his two passions; sports and Judaism. As a child Jeremy played sports religiously until religiosity took over his life. He played high school basketball in Chicago averaging 23 points a game his senior season. His athletic career pretty much came to an end there and so he began his quest to become a rabbi. In 2012 he was ordained as a rabbi from the Jewish Theological Seminary.
