OT Olympics - Northern VA Synagogue Half Court 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament
Sunday, January 25, 1pm
OT and other NOVA synagogues and Jewish organizations will participate in this round-robin tournament at Gesher JDS in Fairfax, enjoying fun and friendly competition doing tzedakah. We will have a schedule with timed games to minimize down time.
Contact Eric Rothberg by January 11 to sign up as a team or individual for $18 per player. Players should be OT members or relatives of OT members and at least 13 for safety and to avoid “ringers.” Anyone can sponsor a team for $180 or more. Send check to Olam Tikvah to OT Men’s Club or pay online here.
