Let’s start with the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, envisioned, inspired and partly owned by Jewish philanthropist Arthur M. Blank. Add to that his ownership of the NFL Atlanta Falcons and the AMB Group, LLC, which operates and manages the stadium.
With the Super Bowl coming to Atlanta, Blank is set to host NFL team owners from around the United States. More than a quarter of them are Jewish, including New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, whose team will compete against the Los Angeles Rams in Sunday’s Big Game. Two Patriot players also are Jewish: Julian Edelman and Nate Ebner.
Our coverage of Jewish Atlanta’s involvement in this year’s game includes Jewish volunteers, the Kosher Halftime Show, Jewish diehard fans who have attended every Super Bowl, and the tzedakah from the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee’s Legacy 53. Headlining the NFL’s halftime show is Maroon 5, led by Adam Levine.
Also hosting festivities, Jewish Atlanta’s very own philanthropists Jeff and Carrla Goldstein throw one of the biggest Super Bowl charity events in the country at their Sandy Springs estate.
So read on and take pride because Jews are a big part of the Super Bowl, from the helm to the altruism we contribute to the Big Game:
