I wanted to express my thanks and gratitude and to highly commend Ron Kaplan’s article in the Sept. 17 New Jersey Jewish News. My father brought the article down from Jersey when he visited Florida recently. The whole article was informative and I learned much. And almost as importantly, it did give me additional pride.

I have always looked up to Koufax, and although I’m not very observant at all, I have my entirely life spent Yom Kippur with my family, fasting and in and out of shul, from pre-Kol Nidre dinner to Ne’ila and the break-fast. I always tell friends, “If Sandy Koufax could miss a World Series game for the holiday, it’s not too much for me to do one holiday right.”

Fifty years and we’re still talking about it!
