With a tremendous amount of effort, Jewish Julilation at Dutchess Stadium was a huge success, with close to 150 people from the Dutchess, Ulster and Orange County Federations braving the 90+ degree weather. Many thanks to Karen Hochhauser of the Jewish Federation of Dutchess County for putting it all together. The first pitch was thrown out by Israel Nitzan, Deputy Consulate General of Israel. Local area Rabbis blew shofar in unison after the National Anthem and a most beautiful rendition of Hatikvah sung by Chaim Kiss..
With appreciaton to Gail Conklin for these pictures.
