The Drink Up Jewish Link Sportstar of the Week: Azarya Tiger

The Jewish Link and Drink Up would like to recognize 14-year-old Azarya Tiger as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. The eighth grader at the Rosenbaum Yeshiva of North Jersey, would be considered the all-around student athlete. When asked about Azaryah, Rabbi Avi Bernstein, RYNJ middle school boys principal,told The Jewish Link “With great skill on the court, one could argue that his finest work is done well beyond it. Always with a kind word, supporting a classmate or simply his humble, soft-spoken approach to everything in life, Azarya is a mentch first and foremost. Just like on the court, he is always making the right move!”
