RZJHS Collects Fourth Regional Title in the IHSA Basketball Championship!

“I’m shomer Shabbat, and it was a day of rest,” Silvers said, using the Hebrew phrase for a person who strictly observes the Sabbath. “I had a restful day. It was just the right thing to get ready for tonight.”

Almost all of the Class 1A and 2A regional title games took place Friday night, but that would not have worked for Sabbath-observing students of Rochelle Zell and Yeshiva. IHSA assistant executive director Matt Troha said an accommodation was made for the two Jewish schools from Deerfield and Skokie that allowed them to play later Saturday night, after the Sabbath had ended.
