One of the guests and presenters will be Dmitriy Salita, the first “ranked boxer” in the world who keeps kosher, attends Synagogue, refuses to fight on the Sabbath, and puts on Tefillin daily. Guests will enjoy watching the movie about his life’s journey, “Orthodox Stance”. He will offer boxing classes and give a talk on Yom Tov.
Dmitriy Salita’s family moved from Odessa, Ukraine (USSR) to New York City in 1991. “We came to America because Jews were discriminated against,” says Salita. “My parents wanted my brother and me to grow up with the opportunity to be the best we could be.” Today, Dmitriy “Star of David Salita” fights to be the best that he can be in and outside the boxing ring. Dmitri will share the story of his journey, and will teach methods to help everyone break through their own perceived physical and spiritual limitations to reach a state of freedom, which is one of the central themes of Pesach. “Fighting hard to reach goals is certainly something we can all use inspiration for, so I think everyone will appreciate Dmitri”, said Rabbi Avraham Laber, of Chabad of Southern Rensselaer County and Director of “Pesach in Lake George”.
Sarah Kupfer, Director of the Day Camp for children and teens is planning a large array of activities, including pony rides, a petting zoo, carnival games, magic show and crafts. Children attending the camp will be busy all day.
All proceeds from Pesach in Lake George will benefit the Jewish Girls Retreat Building Campaign.
