Internet Draws Support for Boys Busted for Bake Sale

Some nice Jewish boys were busted last week for doing something that would make almost any parent proud: They were being entrepreneurial. Andrew DeMarchis and Kevin Graff of Chappaqua, N.Y., were ratted out to the police by local Councilman Michael Wolfensohn, who was unhappy the boys were selling their home-baked goodies in a neighborhood park without a permit.

The two 13-year-olds, along with their Jewish friends Zachary Bass and Daniel Katz, had hatched a lofty business plan to sell refreshments with the goal of saving enough money to eventually open a restaurant. Having all done tzedakah projects to raise charity as part of their recent bar mitzvahs, they felt it was time to branch out into the for-profit world. (Kevin and Andrew were the only two manning the stand when it was shut down last week).
