The Aces are Back

There are a few times during the year I get super excited for sports. Opening day for the White Sox. The NFL draft. And March Madness. Yes, in the NCAA but also at Yeshiva University. Every year, since I was in High School, YU has held what is called the Red Sarachek Tournament. It brings 20 Jewish high schools, mainly Orthodox, to YU for an amazing tournament. I participated for 3 years and have gone every year I have been in NYC. While this might be my last year attending for a while, this year I went to see family friend Ari Bressman and the Ida Crown Aces. The gym was packed, as Ida Crown brought a huge crowd.

For those who love basketball and March Madness I suggest attending. Its competitive and a great Jewish experience. This year I stayed to watch MTA guard, Yisrael Feld, who has gotten plenty of press. He dropped 23 points but looked solid throughout. Also, Valley Torah who has been a big story in the Jewish sports world plays tomorrow. College prospect Aaron Liberman will be featured in that game.

And Let Us Say…Amen.
