B’nai Brith’s first softball game against Temple Sinai last Sunday provided more sports excitement than anyone, player or spectator, could have imagined.

Englewood—A bar mitzvah is a time when attention is focused on a specific individual and his accomplishments.

“Nathan is very humble and modest,”...

My Spartan Race Experience

On Sunday, June 19, I participated in a Spartan Race in Tuxedo, New York. It was a 5.2-mile obstacle course race with 21 obstacles stationed along the way. Some of the challenges included climbing over a 12-foot wall, carrying a 50-pound sandbag up and down a hill, throwing a spear into a target, rolling under barbed wire (uphill), and leaping over a fire pit. It is considered the toughest obstacle course race in the world, and I completed the first of three increasingly more difficult races, called the Spartan Sprint. The Spartan Super (8–10 miles) and the Spartan Beast (12–14 miles) remain to be conquered.

As I drove home from the race that day, battered, bruised, scraped, sore...
