Dear March Madness Fans, 


Welcome to CFHU’s 27th Annual Online March Madness NCAA College Basketball Tournament!


We are very proud to announce our new collaboration with Hillel Ontario for our Madness Tournament. Supporting approximately 14,000 Jewish students at nine universities, Hillel Ontario empowers students to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning, and Israel. Hillel also works to counter antisemitism, and build essential connections with leaders across campus.


Also, this year, we are honouring the memory of Jesse Benudiz, beloved son of long-time CFHU March Madness supporter and friend, Max Benudiz. The Benudiz family have established a new Einstein Legacy Fund called The Jesse Benudiz Blessed & Breezy Memorial Research Fund with donations being directed to brain cancer research at the Institute for Medical Research Israel-Canada (IMRIC) at Hebrew University. See link below for additional information.


Do you have what it takes to predict a perfect bracket? Register here and you could win up to $12,000 in prize money!

Proceeds raised from the 2022 Madness Tournaments support the Einstein Legacy Student Scholarships at the Hebrew University which include:


Good luck and, as always, thank you for your ongoing support!
