Did you know...?

Major League Baseball season opens this week, the earliest in history! Did you know that Temple Aliyah’s B’nai Mitzvah Tutor, Hazzan Linda Sue Sohn, had the honor of singing the Star Spangled Banner at Fenway Park on Mother’s day in 2009? And listed among his most exciting moments as a sports fan, Temple Aliyah President David Farbman savors the memory of being at Fenway Park for Jon Lester’s no-hitter on May 19, 2008. And, if that's not enough Jewish baseball trivia, Rabbi Gordon’s favorite way to unwind after a busy day is to watch the Red Sox. Why not share your favorite baseball moments today?
