Please pardon us, dear reader, while we step away from the usual nature of this editorial page to focus attention on one of our own.
We at the Intermountain Jewish News are very proud of our colleague Gerald Mellman, who will be honored Tuesday evening by the Rocky Mountain Jewish Jewish Historical Society and Beck Archives. The annual dinner has a sports theme and is honoring longtime broadcaster and Colorado Sports of Famer Irv Brown, Denver Nuggets Assistant Coach Steve Hess and the IJN Sports Editor Jerry Mellman.
The Jewish community has always been enthralled with sports, as participants and especially as fans. Mellman’s carefully shot and chosen photographs of sports moments over the past 35 years have illustrated the love affair between Jews and their sports.
