Kosher camper Menachem (Jason) Lieber, 35, who came with the blessings and approval of his wife, pretty much summed it up.
“I would do this every year if I could. The former Yankees and my teammates were great. And I really appreciate that the Yankees arranged for the kosher campers to play against the fantasy Yankees on Friday.”
I hope to see many readers of this column there in January (11-17). For further information call the rabbi at 201-836-3195 or the Yankees at 800-360-CAMP.
