Mariano Rivera, the former Yankees pitcher and future Hall of Famer, came out to support Ohel at a pre-Father’s Day barbeque at the Brecher home in Lawrence, N.Y. The evening began with a meet-and-greet with Mr. Rivera. Next, there was a baseball toss where children played catch with him; those players included children who had been part of Ohel’s foster care program. A barbecue followed. Many of the guests were from New Jersey.
Robert Katz, Ohel’s chief Development Officer, organized the day.
