The Jewish Link and Drink Up would like to recognize Jonas Holland as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. The eighth grader at Rabbi Pesach Raymond Yeshiva (RPRY), led the RPRY basketball team as a sixth and seventh grader, and was looking forward to another solid season this year. RPRY basketball coach Sam Berlin coached Holland for two seasons. When asked about Holland, Coach Berlin told The Jewish Link, “ Jonas is a hard worker, always looking to improve. He is a natural leader who sets a great example for his teammates.”
