Yeshiva League Legends Tournament

This one-day, highly competitive tournament in NYC is guaranteed to become the premier and most competitive Jewish basketball tournament our community has ever seen, as all-time Yeshiva League Legends return to the hardwood representing their alma mater. Our inaugural tournament will feature 16 alumni legends teams, including teams from: Frisch, YULA, DRS, HAFTR, Rambam, North Shore, Valley Torah, RAMAZ, JEC, SAR, HANC, MTA, Ida Crown, Kushner, Hillel & TABC.

The event is undoubtedly going to a truly unique and unparalleled sporting event, as players relive old rivalries and create new memories; most importantly though, the event is being run as a significant fundraiser to benefit an incredible charity, Our Place NY. Our Place NY is our community's largest network of drop-in centers for at-risk Jewish youth struggling with drug & alcohol addiction, past trauma & sexual abuse and criminal behavior. On an annual basis, the Our Place drop-in centers service over 1000 Jewish youth in the New York area, serving 25,000 hot meals, placing several hundred in rehab & therapy, and enabling over one hundred to re-enroll in school or seek positive employment each year. With an unadulterated model of unconditional love and no religious agenda, Our Place's devoted therapeutic and programmatic staff are available around the clock 24/7, as they do everything possible to give a second chance at life to hundreds of young people in our community each year who otherwise would have nowhere else turn. Our Place is their last hope. It is no secret that the overdose and suicide rates in our community continue to grow and the heroic staff at Our Place are continuing to fight this never-ending battle on the front lines. Unfortunately, addiction and abuse do not discriminate against any community, including our own, and Our Place plays a vital role in helping so many of our young people have a sober, productive and meaningful life.

This event is being chaired by the partners of Rosenberg & Steinmetz PC.
