… Growing up, the idea of becoming a Division 1 basketball player and getting a scholarship seems almost, impossible. On top of that, telling a team that you can’t play from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday is basically completely impossible. If someone could have just told me when I was 9, “Hey, Tamir, you’re going to be able to do this. There’s going to be a team that’s going to accommodate you. There’s going to be a great journey to get there, but ultimately you’re going to be able to live out your dream and play on a Division 1 basketball scholarship without playing on Shabbat.” That would have been really healing to know that even though it seems impossible, you’re going to be able to do it.

We had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Tamir Goodman.
