Default Favourite Jewish Players?

This is a bandwagon thread and maybe we can have favourite Muslim players, favourite Protestant, favourite Roman Catholic, Jehovas Witnesses and etc etc.

I will attempt to try and include as many current players as possible, but it won't be easy.

This is a serious thread and Master Gimelstob deserves his name spelt correctly as Gimelnob is not fair for the purpose of this thread.

Gottfried and Solomon made Slam finals, something Gilbert never did. Gilbert was a joke in the Slams.

Must correct. Massu does not consider himself Jewish. He was raised Catholic but identifies with his Arab side more. And I vote Andyoni anyday.

Whether Massu likes it or not, he is still part Jewish
