Congratulations to the Chess Champs!!

Last Sunday the shul hosted its 12th Annual Community Chess Tournament.

There was an excellent turnout and the tournament was fun and competitive.

The winners of the Open Division were Yechiel Robinson (1st place) and Yoel Jeselsohn (2nd place).  The winners of the Junior Division were Jonathan Cohen (1st), Nadav Greenberger (2nd) and Jordan Cohen/Zachary Drapkin/Benni Trachtenberg (tied for 3rd).  Check out the story with photos on the home page.

Mazal tov!
