Olympian Emeric Santo, Wallabies five-eighth Rupert Rosenblum, former FFA board members Phil Wolanski and Brian Schwartz, Maccabi Australia past-president Phil Filler and karate world champion Danny Hakim will be inducted into the Maccabi NSW Hall of Fame later this year.
They will join some of the most high-profile Australian Jewish sporting personalities, including Frank Lowy and Mike Wrublewski, in the exclusive group.
The Hall of Fame was established in 1999, when Rosenblum’s father, Myer Rosenblum, was honoured as part of the first group of inductees.
Myer and Rupert Rosenblum are the only father-son duo to be part of the Hall of Fame.
Maccabi NSW president Danny Hochberg said it’s very exciting to see deserving members of the community honoured.
“We have a very prestigious group of individuals, in particular the administrators who have not only been involved in their own sports but also as contributors to Maccabi,” Hochberg said.
The Hall of Fame function will be held on December 12.
