20th September 2017


It was the eve of Roshashannah and the Jews that love basketball more than Shul played a 5 aside game. The 2 teams
The Yentil’s in blue (Louise, Nancy, Sally, Sarita & Feddi verses the Gentiles in Purple (Tulay, Gilly, Lisa, Josephine and Dania)
Josephine started the game by blowing the Shofar (rams horn) to Start….Giddd-i-iorrr…Giddd-i-iorrr  .
Sally won the jump and the blue jews were the first to score. Blinded by the light Feddi ran up the court like a burning bush shooting into the net. Hallabuluju!
Josephine gave us the commandments Thou shall not run with the ball, this is called travel. One should pass the ball to your teammates. Dania listened well and brought the ball down, chosen by God to follow a path to the brisket. She scored a corker. Both teams alike stared in awe of the miracle before them. Man to man I followed Dania. 3 times she saw the light at the top of the bimah and scored. Who’s on Tulay I heard them call as she scored. God blessed Lisa with a basket…Giddd-i-iorrr…Giddd-i-iorrr. Sarita and Feddi equaled the scores for the leading Yentiles. Hallabuluju! Nancy too was chosen to catch balls directly under the net without being hurt a miracle!  While Sally just popped them in. Dania got her usual fist in the tit. Meanwhile Rabbi Josephine took the service, the Gentiles caught up whipping those rebounds from beneath the blues eyes. The final score was to the Gibbity-gibbet -Gentiles whose faces had turned purple.
At 8pm The Shofar blew one last time. Giddd-i-iorrr…Giddd-i-iorrr.
A sweet new year to you all ‘Shanah Tovah’
