Now that we've had our first snow of the season, it's time once again for the annual shul outing to watch the Yale Ice Hockey team completely destroy Colgate! Last year was lots of fun for kids both young and grown, and we're looking forward to another great time this year! We are currently signing up people to purchase tickets, and need a firm head count before tickets can be bought. Get in on what promises to be a great night of fun and near-certain Yale victory! Payment is accepted by credit card, personal check, body check, and hip check, but cross-checking will get you two minutes in the penalty box.
