Abstract (Document Summary)

Hapoel Tel Aviv's legendary goalkeeper Ya'acov Chodorov leads a list of Israeli sports personalities who will be inducted to The Jewish Sports Hall of Fame tomorrow. The ceremony, which will be held at the Givat Ram campus of the Hebrew University, also includes basketball star Tanhum Cohen-Mintz, basketball coach Yehoshua Rozin, journalist Yehiel Arazi and administrators Yariv Oren and Adin Talbar. Also slated for enshrinement are the 11 athletes murdered at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

Ya'acov Chodorov was a goalkeeper for Hapoel Tel Aviv and the national team. In 1946 he began his career with Hapoel, and the following year he was chosen for the national team which traveled to New York for a widely publicized game.

Marking the 20th year since the 1972 Olympic massacre of 11 Israeli sportsmen in Munich, the Jewish Sports Hall of Fame honors the memory of: weightlifters Joseph Romano, David Berger and Ze'ev Friedman, wrestling referee Yosef Gottfreund, wrestling coach Moshe Weinberg, riflery coach Shorr Kehat, wrestler Eliezer Halfin, fencing coach Andrei Spitzer, wrestler Mark Slavin, track-and-field coach Amitzur Shapira and weightlifting referee Yaacov Springer.
