The Maimonides School Invitational Basketball Tournament is about much more than basketball. It is an opportunity for students, teachers, families and alumni to coalesce in spirit behind our students. It is a warm, memorable Shabbat experience for participants and the school community. And it is a model for all on blending intense play on the court with examples of middot including sportsmanship, humility and respect.
It is a fitting tribute to have this tournament named after Leland Gelman '82, as Maimonides and team sports meant so much to him. We are very appreciative of the Gelman Family's support in honoring Leland's memory this way.
