Rabbis Bless Yanks’ Rivera as Man of the Year; Free trip to Israel

JewishPress Logo

The New York Board of Rabbis will name Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera “Man of the Year” and will award him a free trip to Israel.

Rivera, the record-holder for most career saves, was chosen because of his philanthropic efforts and extensive relief work for Panama through his church, said Rabbi Joseph Potasnik, the executive vice president of the interdenominational rabbinic group.

“Mariano is a very religious person who is deeply committed to doing good, and is a strong supporter of Israel,” Potasnik told JTA. “We will be doing a family trip after baseball season and the Jewish holidays later in the year.”

The group is still deciding on Rivera’s exact title, as well as the time and location of the ceremony.
