Although many people are against Kraft’s ownership of a professional sports team because he is Jewish, he publicly denounced anti-Semitism and expressed his beliefs that sport is a great way to bring people together around their passions. “Sport has brought me so many incredible friends and I look forward to being able to continue to help so many more people with my business endeavors. The best part of business is that it brings together so many people and what better way than sport. See this page for additional information.
