...and Alberman. Or don't you agree?
do you have a link to go along with the erik hort signing?
The other was Glauber!
Berti Glauber left Nuremberg. He's playing for Manchester City now.
when will the list be updated?
Where is the proof that Galasek is Jewish?
Berti Glauber told it to me (I often met him in the pizzeria of my Brasilian friend Junior - his sister is married to the Italian owner - in former days). Nearby I've read diverse German articles (unfortunately, I don't find the links anymore) that with Glauber, Galasek (who played for Ajax before he came to Nuremberg) and Sorin, the Bundesliga had 3 players of Jewish ancestry.
Luis Sadovnic of 15 yrs old is playing for the Venezuelan under-17 NT, seems like he's a big promise for Venezuelan football, he plays for San Agustín del Paraiso school, he used to play for Hebraica (the jewish school of Caracas)...the southamerican under-17 tournament will start next month...if he goes i'll bring some updates..
not sure if posted but...
Name: Gabriel Obertan
Place of Birth: Pantin, France
Date of Birth: 26/02/1989
Height: 1.86 cms
also argentinian Gaston Lagman, but couldn't find much of him...
Here's one, not sure if he's Jewish though
Vladimir Weiss (Slovakia) - Plays for the Manchester City youth team, and was on the bench for the UEFA Cup tie today.
Heres another, I cant confirm, but Chris Cohen is a midfielder for Nottingham Forest. Apparently hes a product of the West Ham Academy.
Chris Cohen is not Jewish, he is only of Jewish ancestry.
I watched some videos of Obertan the other day, he is really fast, Israel should have called him up, hes already been capped by the U-21's in france already, some people seem to think he is the next Thierry Henry, we'll see about that
I assume if he is good enough to play for france u-21 he probably has dreams of playing for the A-team, so im sure it would be difficult for Israel to convince him otherwise....however if it happens then i hope he can learn hebrew so he can communicate on the field
Here is an updated list. Please see if I missed something. Remember, being on the list does not mean a player is Jewish according to Jewish law or practices Judaism, it simply means that they are of Jewish ancestry (at least one Jewish grandparent) and would qualify for Israeli citizenship and not count as a foreigner for Israeli clubs and possibly even contend for a spot on the national team.

You didn't add Obertan to the french list.
Where is the proof for Obertan?
Martin Dohlsten was talked about in the Swedish Makkabi magazine for January 2009 as were the other Swedish and Finnish Jews in the list.
