Is Kevin Youkilis Jewish

Youkilis described his father as a "well-known third baseman in the Jewish Community Center fast-pitch softball league." Kevin Youkilis is currently engaged to marry Tom Brady's sister Julie.

Youkilis together with Adam Stern and Gabe Kapler set a record for the most Jewish players on the field at one time in AL history, and the most in Major League Baseball history since four Jewish players took the field for the New York Giants in a game in 1941. Kevin Youkilis was named the Jewish MVP for 2008 and the top Jewish baseball player of the decade 2000–09.

Youkilis has said, "In my religion, the Jewish religion, that's one of the biggest things that's taught, is giving a mitzvah, forming a mitzvah", said Youkilis. "I was always taught as a kid giving to charity. You're supposed to give a good amount of charity each and every year.... It's just a great thing when you can make a kid smile that's going through some hard times in life ... I wish more people, not just athletes, would give people just a little bit of their time. It doesn't take much ... It can make a huge difference."

Youkilis was traded to the Chicago White Sox on June 24, 2012.
