After completing an undefeated regular season (8 wins, 7 by mercy), and mercy-ing SAR 13-0 in the semi-final game, TABC traveled to the Hawk’s nest (HAFTR) to play DRS in the championship game last week.

One Jewish sports enthusiast in New Jersey is changing children’s lives by putting big smiles on the faces of children going through rough times.

Mike Dube, from Sharing Seats, is always on the lookout for a child who needs some cheering up. Mike’s compassion drives his desire to make these children feel special. Sharing Seats allows children who are battling illness or struggling with a family member’s illness to have a “time out” at a sports event, concert, Broadway show or other fun night out.

Batya Paul from Bergenfield, New Jersey, writes about how...

Calling All Spectators to Jewish Heritage Day at Yogi Berra Stadium

Today I went to a professional baseball game. Not at Yankee Stadium or Citi Field but at Yogi Berra Stadium, home of the New Jersey Jackals. The Jackals play in the independent CanAm League and are in first place with an 8-4 record. Yogi Berra Stadium is on the campus of Montclair State University in Little Falls, New Jersey right next to the lovely Yogi Berra Museum. It is only 20 minutes from Teaneck and conveniently near Passaic, Elizabeth, West Orange, Livingston and Springfield.

I had the opportunity to meet two of the three Jewish baseball players on both teams: Robert and Richard Stock, brother pitcher and catcher of the Jackals and Adam Ehrlich, catcher of Quebec City. I had...

In 2003, Mo Fuchs and Sariel Malitzky had an idea. They were both coaching in the yeshiva high school hockey league and knew first-hand the impact that sports in general and specifically hockey was having on their players. Teaneck youth have been playing sports forever. However, hockey was not on the radar. That would change in a big way!

Mo and Sariel (before he became Rabbi Malitzky, popular rebbe at TABC) decided to launch the TABC Junior Hockey League. They aimed to provide a well-run program for children to learn to play hockey and absorb essential life lessons. There are many values that can be learned and internalized through sports; respect of coaches, refs, opponents and...
