Doron Sheffer (Hebrew: דורון שפר‎; born 12 March 1972), is an Israeli professional basketball player formerly with Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Sheffer first gained fame at age 21 when he led Hapoel Galil Elyon to a 1993 victory in the Israeli League semifinals over Maccabi Tel Aviv. Following fellow Israeli, Nadav Henefeld,[1] Sheffer then played guard for coach Jim Calhoun at the University of Connecticut from 1993 to 1996, where he became Big East Conference Rookie of the Year and the only player from UConn with 1,000 points and 500 assists in three varsity seasons. He was selected in the 1996 Draft by the Los Angeles Clippers with the 36th overall pick but chose to sign with Maccabi. After four years with Maccabi winning four straight Israeli League championships, Sheffer retired suddenly, walking away from the public eye to travel the world to India, South America and Costa Rica. During this time he had a cancerous tumor removed from his testicles. Despite the illness and time away from basketball, Sheffer decided to make a comeback. After finishing his contract with Maccabi, he signed with Hapoel Jerusalem. In 2004 he won the ULEB Eurocup with Hapoel.[2][3]
