Group Description

This group is for all people that have played in the Borscht Bowl, want to play in the Borscht Bowl or have friends or relatives that have or do play in the Borscht Bowl. The purpose of this group is for people to share stories and pictures of the Borscht Bowl.

The Borscht Bowl started in 1939, we think. The first game was played between teenagers from Shorewood and Whitefish Bay. The 1946 game was the last tackle game and was between the West side and East side Jews of Milwaukee. The first game was played in a vacant lot on the southwest corner of Capital Drive and Downer Avenue in Shorewood, Milwaukee. The game is currently played at the Whitefish Bay High School practice field on Ardmore Avenue. The first games were tackle, but now the game is 2 handed touch and is open to all people that want to play football on Thanksgiving morning.
