Episode 35: Olympic Skeleton Racer AJ Edelman on Sports, Israel and Life at 90 Miles per Hour

By JewishBoston.com

This year, Israel, a country with nine ski lifts, three skating rinks and winter temperatures hovering around 60 degrees, sent a record 10 athletes to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. Among them was AJ Edelman, a 26-year-old Orthodox Jew who attended Maimonides School and MIT in Boston.
