A Goal Beyond the Game

After their 12-5 victory over Syracuse, Yeshiva University's roller hockey team experienced a unique post-game moment. Sol Feder, a freshman player, spotted "Cohen" on an opposing jersey and inquired if the player was Jewish. Daniel Cohen, a 21-year-old from Syracuse, confirmed he was. In the locker room, Sol assisted Daniel, who had never had a Bar Mitzvah, in wrapping tefillin and reciting the Shema. The teammates, moved by the ceremony, erupted into cheers and a celebratory dance. Captured and shared on social media, this event not only marked Daniel’s spiritual milestone but also inspired others to embrace more mitzvahs.
