Among the 25,000 runners in Sunday’s Miami Marathon, one group will stand out for its distinctive gear: some long skirts, a few tzitzit and lots of beards.
Blazoned across their T-shirts is “Team Lifeline.” The 300 runners, mostly Orthodox Jews, make up the largest charity group in this year’s race. They raise money for Camp Simcha, a refuge for sick children in upstate New York.
“Team Lifeline” runners come from all over the country. The Miami race, which begins at AmericanAirlines Arena and ends at Bayfront Park, is one of three the group enters because it’s on a Sunday, rather than on a Saturday, their Sabbath.
Plus, said group director Moshe Turk, who lives in Israel, “everybody in the country has a relative in Miami.”
Running groups have boomed in recent years, gathering novice runners to train. There are 25 groups racing Sunday that are strictly training groups and another 32 that are raising money for a cause.
“I’m not putting down any other charity,” said Miami Marathon co-director Frankie Ruiz, “but ‘Team Lifeline’ is the most committed group we have.”
On the team’s suggestion, the race has a nondenominational prayer tent at the starting line. “With all the glitz and glamour, they thought to have a moment to be reflective and give thanks,” Ruiz said.
One South Floridian on “Team Lifeline” is Nessa Reich, 36, a Hollywood mother of five who is running her fourth half-marathon.
In keeping with strict Orthodox traditions, Reich runs with a headcovering, sometimes a runner’s cap, sometimes a red-white-and-blue bandanna. She also wears a skirt, just above the knee, with leggings underneath.
“I guess part of it is to prevent chafing, but really I’m nervous about having a Marilyn Monroe moment,” said Reich, who belongs to the modern orthodox Young Israel of Hollywood.

East Palestine village manager optimistic about water outlook
By: Layne Batt
The comments were the latest sign that disagreements over the valley had the potential to derail a peace proposal being formulated by Mr Kerry, the US secretary of state – who left Israel for Amman, the Jordanian capital, early on Sunday after three days of intensive talks with Israeli and Palestinian leaders. He was due to meet King Abdullah, the Jordanian monarch.
Eight members of Mr Netanyahu’s cabinet last week voted in favour of a bill in the Knesset, the Israeli parliament, demanding that Israel permanently annex the Jordan Valley, currently home to around 4,500 Jewish settlers.
The Palestinians are staunchly opposed to an Israeli security presence and have proposed an international force instead.
Mr Kerry, who was expected to return to Jerusalem on Sunday evening after also visiting Saudi Arabia, is said to be trying to bridge the divide by suggesting a mixed Israeli-Palestinian force, without setting any deadline for Israel’s troops to leave.
The US secretary of state who faced public protests from Palestinian demonstrators on Friday when he visited Ramallah to meet Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president said any peace agreement would be “fair and balanced”.
His comments followed criticism from both sides but more vociferously from the Palestinians that his mediation was biased in favour of the rival party. Mr Kerry is also having to contend with Palestinian opposition to Mr Netanyahu’s demands that they should explicitly recognise Israel as a Jewish state.
While referring to his quest as a “puzzle”, Mr Kerry voiced optimism on Sunday that his peace efforts were making progress.
“The path is becoming clearer. The puzzle is becoming more defined,” he said.
“And it is becoming much more apparent to everybody what the remaining tough choices are. But I cannot tell you when, particularly, the last pieces may decide to fall into place or may fall on the floor and leave the puzzle unfinished.”
Yasser Abed Rabbo, a senior Palestinian official close to the negotiations with Israel, called the ongoing talks “serious”, but appeared less optimistic: “I can’t say now that there’s any actual or substantial progress in all the discussions,” he told Voice of Palestine Radio.

Israel began transferring fuel to Gaza's sole power plant on Sunday, a Palestinian official said, as the Hamas-ruled enclave struggled to deal with massive flooding caused by winter downpours.

* Netanyahu says Israel not bound by Geneva deal JERUSALEM, Nov 24 (Reuters) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday denounced the big powers' nuclear deal with Iran as a historic mistake that left the production of atomic weapons within Tehran's reach, and he said Israel would not be bound by it. Having lost its battle against easing sanctions on Iran, Israel appeared to be …
JERUSALEM Israel’s prime minister harshly condemned the international community’s nuclear deal with Iran on Sunday, calling it a “historic mistake” and saying he was not bound by the agreement.
Speaking to his Cabinet, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the world had become a “more dangerous place” as a result of the deal and reiterated a long-standing threat to use military action against Iran if needed, declaring that Israel “has the right and the duty to defend itself by itself.”
Israel believes Iran is trying to develop a nuclear weapon, and in the weeks leading up to Sunday’s agreement, Netanyahu had warned the emerging deal was insufficient.
He had called for increased pressure on Iran, and warned that any relief from economic sanctions would make Iran less willing to compromise during a coming, six-month period aimed at reaching a final agreement.
Netanyahu told his Cabinet that Sunday’s deal gave Iran much-needed relief from the sanctions, but left most of Iran’s nuclear infrastructure intact. In particular, he cited Iran’s continued ability to enrich uranium, a key step in making a nuclear bomb.
“What was reached last night in Geneva is not a historic agreement, it is a historic mistake,” Netanyahu said. “Today the world became a much more dangerous place because the most dangerous regime in the world made a significant step in obtaining the most dangerous weapons in the world.”
Voicing what he called Israel’s right to self-defense, he said, “I want to clarify that Israel will not let Iran develop nuclear military capability.”
Earlier, Netanyahu’s Cabinet minister for intelligence issues, Yuval Steinitz, said the deal was based on “Iranian deception and (international) self-delusion.”
Yet he and other officials said Israel would have to turn its focus to the outcome of the final negotiations.
The exact details of Sunday’s deal, hammered out in Geneva between six world powers and Iran, were not immediately known. Israel was not a participant in the talks but remained in close touch with the U.S. and other allies during the negotiations.
