Ezra Schwartz memorial run draws hundreds

More than 200 runners and walkers have registered to compete in the fifth annual FIT (For Israel Team Hillel) 5K run/walk and one-mile fun/walk on Sunday, April 10, in Buccleuch Park, New Brunswick. The event, held rain or shine, benefits the Rutgers Hillel Center for Israel Engagement. It was renamed this year to honor the memory of Ezra Schwartz, an incoming Rutgers freshman, who was murdered by terrorists while delivering food to IDF soldiers in Israel.

Participants also include youth contingents representing B’nai Tikvah Congregation in North Brunswick and Diller Teen Fellows of the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest.
