In anticipation of the New York City Marathon, coming up this Sunday, Nachum welcomed Peter Berkowsky, Director of The International Minyan for New York City Marathoners to this morning’s JM in the AM to discuss the important details for those who would like to take part in a minyan prior to the run. For the 38th year, the TCS New York City Marathon, will feature morning services at the Fort Wadsworth staging ground for the many Jewish runners expected to compete in the 51st edition of this world-famous road race. This year’s race will honor the memory of the late Fred Lebow, the “father of the NYC marathon” and a patron of the group’s minyan project from its earliest days. The International Minyan for New York City Marathoners, inaugurated in 1983, is a project of JRunners, a Brooklyn-based organization dedicated to encouraging physical health for Jewish men and women through athletic competition. Full shachris services will commence at approximately 7:00 a.m., and at appropriate intervals thereafter, to accommodate the hundreds of expected participants from around the world who are assigned to the several wave starts of the race. Each service should take about a half hour, and runners are urged to select a service that will allow them at least 45 minutes after completion to get to their race start marshaling corral. For more information call Minyan Director Peter Berkowsky at 973/477-7908.
