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 South Korea. Among them was AJ Edelman, a 26-year-old Orthodox Jew who attended Maimonedes in the Boston area then MIT. He has likened his sport to “taking a lunch tray, diving headfirst on to it, and going 90 miles an hour down an icy chute.” We talk to AJ about his insane sport, repping Israel on the world stage, and how he'll be celebrating Israel's 70th birthday.
