SOUTH ORANGE, NJ — On Sunday, Nov. 19, Congregation Beth El in South Orange will host a presentation from American-Israeli baseball star Nate Fish. The event will begin with lunch at noon, followed by the presentation.
Fish played for the Tel Aviv Lighting team during the only year of the Israel Baseball League and previously served as the national director of the Israel Association of Baseball.
