Congresswoman Grace Meng Responds To Jewish Community

It was an evening of multi-generational bonding when fathers, sons, cousins, and friends set out on an Emet-style fishing expedition. Participants gathered on the deck of the “Super Hawk” in Point Lookout for Minchah and then tried their hands at reeling in a catch. Rabbi David Delman, Emet’s fishing expert, provided tips and encouragement. The main “catch of the day” was actually the connections that were made during the kumsitz and conversations. The night offered a relaxing opportunity for Emet educators, students, their families, and friends to enjoy each other’s company in a fun and spiritual way.

“This event was truly a memorable night for the men and boys of Emet,” said Rabbi Akiva Rutenberg, Founder and Director. “It was a way for people of all ages and backgrounds to spend time together in a natural and relaxed setting. At Emet, our students are like family, and our relationships are the key to cementing our Jewish observance. We were able to enjoy both on the boat!”
