Shabbat Shalom: Saturday Wrap-up (4/25/15)
We are one week away from the “Fight of the Century” with Mayweather vs. Pacquiao on May 2nd. In the spirit of the delayed ticket sales for the fight, our Shabbat Shalom series was also delayed to today. There’s plenty of sporting events over the next week including the NFL Draft this Thursday. Prior to the start of the draft, check out our list of the top 150 prospects and their agents. Here are Darren’s posts from this week on FORBES: (1) J.J.
