    I know, I know, a bit of an odd question.

    However I do know someone with the last name Crosby who is Jewish, so I was wondering if it was the same deal with Sidney.

    Given the, uh, limited number of Jewish hockey players I think it would be neat to have a player of this stature be Jewish.

    Not sure, but I would doubt it.

    a) He is a hockey player
    b) He is from Nova Scotia

    Crosby isn't a Jewish name, so chances are he isn't, but there are plenty of Jews with non Jewish last names (like me), so you never know.

    I'm not jewish, but as far as I know it's passed along from the
    mother's side. If the mom is jewish, s/he is jewish. Since in most
    western societies the lastname is given from the father's side, someone
    with a jewish mother and a non-jewish father is jewish, but doesn't
    have a jewish lastname.

    That is correct. In the Jewish religion, if the mother is Jewish, the child is considered Jewish as well.

    Mike Cammalleri's mother is Jewish, so as is he.

    That could be the case with some, but that is not the case with all (including me). When my family came to America from the old country (I say "old country" because I am not sure which country it was, exactly), their last name was long, complicated, and very hard to pronounce for the immigration officers at Ellis Island, so they changed the name (Klakarzki, or something like that) to a much shorter version (Clair). A lot of people think I am French-Canadian (which I am not) and no one ever thinks I am Jewish (which I am).

    I'm pretty sure I remember him being a devout Chirstian. Religion is stressed in his family.

    Crosby is an Irish name. I doubt that he is Jewish. Besides being Jewish is a religion, not a nationality.

    why? I for one have found it very interesting and educational.

    I always wondered what chris chelios's past is, does anyone know where his name comes from and what religion he is?

    thanks in advance.

    does sidney crosby have a WEBSITE?



    i would gues no he isnt jewish

    seems to me the jewish population in nova scotia exists in small #'s outside of halifax. In my town which was a booming coal town for decades there are very few jews left Most of them lretire and move to Halifax or Montreal.

    Odds are he isnt jewish!

    The only Jewish player that I recall is former Flyer Larry Zeidel(sp?),and for Crosby,I doubt if he's Greek,but then again,i'm wrong with everything. If he is,then :yo:

    Mattieu Schneider is Jewish. When he played for the Leafs he never played on high holidays.

    I also heard Peter Ing is Jewish :-D
