In 2012, two Temple Israel congregants, Scott Elisofon and Laurence Bailen, created our Men’s Softball teams to play in the Men’s Shul Softball League, which is comprised of various Temples from the greater Boston area. The teams were created in an effort to strengthen the TI men’s community while also reliving their youth by getting back out on the baseball field. Both teams have been very successful on the fields and are having a lot of fun.
In addition to the league, the men have participated in a charity softball tournament which was organized by the Men’s Shul Softball League. All proceeds went to the Jewish Family & Children’s Service Family Table, the largest kosher food pantry in New England. Way to go, teams!
