Leadership Institute Hosts 3 on 3 Tournament for KosherTroops

by Raziel Siegman ('17)


This past week, MTA's Kosher Troops 3 on 3 basketball tournament fundraiser wss held to benefit KosherTroops. It was organized as a chesed activity by the Leadership Institute, the special community leadership program directed by Rabbi Shalom Richter. A few dozen students paired up in groups of 3, and participated in the tournament during lunch in The MAX. All of those who played donated money to Kosher Troops, an organization that provides Kosher food for Jewish soldiers in the American army. This is especially helpful during Pesach, when many soldiers would otherwise not have matzah and Kosher for Pesach food. After all was said and done, the team of Aaron Saxon ('17), Josh Klein ('17), and Max Herskowitz ('17) took home the championship, but everybody enjoyed playing ball for such a worthy cause.
