Abstract: A five-parameter family of reproducing kernels is constructed for -Racah polynomials. Special cases for -Hahn and little -Jacobi polynomials are considered by selecting the parameters appropriately. Corresponding bilinear sums are also obtained for a whole range of -orthogonal polynomials. As a special case, some product formulas are obtained for -Racah and -Wilson polynomials.
