The games occur on Sunday mornings from 8:00am until 10:00am........actual games start 8:15am allowing for some warm-up

Most of the games are played at Harvard Fields #1 thru #4 in Irvine (near Jamboree & 5 FWY)

There are typically 20 regular season games which establish the Playoff Seeding of the teams as #1 thru #8 seeds.

After the regular season, there is a double-elimination Playoff.

The season runs from March 1st thru about mid-November (about 38 weeks) depending upon weather, and field availability

The cost of the league is $80 per week per team. However the league has invited us to play the first 2 weeks free of charge.

This week we read one of the most important verses in the Torah: "You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against your countrymen. Love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Eternal One" (Lev 19:18).

Most often we focus on the second part of this verse (a version of the Golden Rule), but the theologian Martin Buber linked the two parts by asserting that all human beings should be regarded as components of the same body. When we hurt someone else an effort to get even we hurt part of ourselves. Anger and a thirst for vengeance are corrosive to our own souls.

Shabbat Shalom.

Rabbi Gersh Zylberman
