Sabbath could end Jewish school’s basketball playoff run


The Beren Academy advanced to the semifinals in the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools’ 2A tournament with a 23-5 record and was scheduled to play Dallas Covenant at 9 p.m. on Friday.

Beren players observe the Sabbath between Friday night and Saturday night and won’t play basketball during those hours.

The academy appealed to TAPPS to have their game time moved, but the agency’s nine-member board unanimously voted it down.

Now the school can only hope that the private school organization has a change of heart and allows the game to be rescheduled. The team held its regular practice on Tuesday.
