Football in Jewish Culture


You might wonder what football has to do with Jewish identity, but when you consider the brotherhood among footy fans and the rivalry between opposing teams, you can see a distinct parallel. Football is almost like a religion in some ways - you have devout followers, rituals, places of worship (stadiums and pubs), songs, and idols. So when you combine football, fans, and the faith, you create a very strong cultural identity.

Four Four Jew is an exhibition that explores that identity. Having just opened at the Jewish Museum, you can find out about Jewish teams, their followers, and how the game played an important part in the lives of British Jews. Tickets are 7.50 for adults during the day, and 3.50 children and evening visits.

The exhibit will include memorabilia, rare objects, and film footage, as well as the opportunity to join the Four Four Jew Fan Club.

Throughout the exhibit, there will be a number of scheduled events, including a White Hart Lane and Forever Blowing Bubbles Walking Tour. On the 24th November, there will also be a Football Fun Day. You'll be able to replica Premier League Trophy, try out your football skills, and make a Chanukah candle.
