I read this thing though, apparently it's a myth that he was Jewish. I just posted this story in another thread read it though, not sure if anyone'll get it though:

Contrary to popular opinion, one of the more popular heavyweights, Max Baer, was not Jewish, boxing historians say. Lawrence S. Ritter, author of "East Side, West Side," a chronicle of forgotten sporting clubs in New York, tells in the book of a time when Baer was in a gym hitting a heavy bag on Yom Kippur.

"What are you doing?" a reporter asked Baer, confused.

"Getting ready to fight Primo Carnera," he said.

"What about Yom Kippur?"

"I'll fight him next!" Baer replied

I have never heard that Max Baer was not Jewish.

That story you related ("Yom Kippur...I'll fight him next") is emblematic of Mr. Baer's sense of humor. That story is probably true, but it doesn't reveal that Baer was not Jewish, it reveals a bit about Baer's personality - nothing serious, life is a ball, make a joke every chance I get.

Roxy, watch one of Baer's fights -- on his fighting trunks Baer wore the biggest Star of David you will ever see. You explain to me why that was there. Also, his fight against Schmeling was seen as the Jew vs. the Nazi.

Maybe Max might have been half-Jewish (I don't know), but Mr. Max Baer was a hell of a lot more Jewish than the Pope (that I'm certain of).

na I wasn't saying the story was evidence of him not being Jewish, what I've heard is that his father was Jewish which would make him a gentile.

In the crazy Jew world you're only Jewish if your mother is Jewish, weather you are religiously Jewish or not. That's why, Mike Rossman had a gentile father and a Jewish mother so he was Jewish. Had it been reversed he wouldn't be Jewish

Maybe I have it wrong maybe Baer did have a Jewish mother I dunno I've just always heard that it was really that he only had a Jewish father

Roxy, I'll take your word that Baer might have been half-Jewish. Whether his mother was Jewish or his father was Jewish, Max Baer sure felt he was Jewish -- that Star of David he wore on his shorts could be seen a mile away. Max Baer was definitely proud of his roots.

na I don't doubt it for a second. Technically, I'm only half-Jewish (my father is Italian), I lucked out havin a Jewish mother, lots of Jews give me crap sayin I'm not a real Jew because I don't have two Jewish parents. Same way I'm half Italian and couldn't be prouder of my roots either way.

According to fighters who shared locker rooms with him, he was definitely NOT Jewish. I don't think I need to go into further detail.
