There may be no sports this season in the Yeshiva League, but get ready for the “Tip Off” podcast, hosted by Ari Witkes and Jay Aron. The long-time HAFTR livestream duo in conjunction with Yeshiva League Pass will be bringing you interviews with Jewish sports legends from all over the world. The podcast will delve into the history of Jewish athletes, coaches and professionals and tell their stories and journeys. The world of Yeshiva League sports may be quiet, but these two loudmouths hope to give you a look into the inner workings and behind-the-scenes stories of some of the greatest Jewish ballers and their unique stories.

The first episode will feature Tamir Goodman, AKA the “Jewish Jordan.” Goodman was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated when he was 16 years old and was one of the top 25 basketball recruits in the country. He landed a full scholarship to The University of Maryland and was ready to bring his tremendous skills along with his kippah and tzitzit to the college world. Then, as the saying goes, “Man plans, and God laughs,” his story would take many twists and turns. The entire podcast will be available in early February. The upcoming guests will be a must listen as we look forward to taking you along on journeys of struggle and triumph. Get ready, it’s almost time for “Tip Off!”
