2012 Jewish NCAA Bracket
Over the last 3 years TGR has been giving you the Jewish NCAA Bracket. In the first year we brought you a winner. Duke and Cornell helped produce those results. Last year we were in the middle of the pack. We used various methods from Jewish numbering, players, and Hillel sizes. But this year we tried a different method. We reached out to four rabbis, each one has a connection to the tournament regions. Each region was decided by the individual rabbi and then TGR picked the Final Four matchups and Champion. Below is a brief reason each rabbi was chosen and below that are the brackets. This is hoping that 5 rabbis can summon God and help you with your bracket.
Rabbi Jeremy Yoskowitz - Duke Hillel Rabbi. Duke is the #2 seed in the South Region.
SOUTH REGION - Rabbi Jeremy Yoskowitz
WEST REGION - Rabbi Efrem Reis
EAST - Rabbi Erez Sherman
MIDWEST - Rabbi Ari Kaiman
FINAL FOUR - Rabbi Jeremy Fine
Given all #1 seeds (Thanks Rabbis for being creative) here are the TGR Picks
