Crossing the Kinneret for a Cause


On June 15 2018, over 80 men participated in the first annual Mens' Cross Kinneret Swimathon, to benefit YBA's Yeshivot Hesder. [A parallel womens' swim already exists.] Organized by YBA's director of institutional advancement, Naftali Kandler, the swim had multiple tracks of difficulty and attracted fathers and sons of all ages, including five Roshei Yeshiva and Knesset member Betzalel Smotritch. A good time was had by all, and the good work of Yeshivot Bnei Akiva was spotlighted.
