What at great start to the Maccabiah Games we have had these first few days with the amazing athletes of Team USA! The ISRAEL CONNECT educational and cultural program has been wonderful.  It was great to see the kids at the Wall yesterday in Jerusalem and today, the Dead Sea and Masada were absolutely inspirational! Tomorrow we will visit Yad Vashem and then we head to Kedma Gardens for the Phyllis Magerman B'nai Mitzvah Ceremony. I am so proud to be a member of Team USA.

Maccabi USA Rugby at Dead See
The USA Rugby Team is extremely focused on two gold medals at the 19th Maccabiah Game, in 7's and 15's. A core group of athletes, that participated in the 2009 Games, along with all of the current Team have been training and working hard to win a gold medal in each of these events over the last four years.  Make sure to attend the Ruby 7's tournament this Wednesday, July 17th at Wingate Institute in Netanya.  Although athletes will be moving to their respective accommodations centers that day, there is no other competition scheduled at this time so it is the perfect time for as many who are able to come on over and cheer Maccabi USA on to the gold! The Rugby 7's Tournament  will take place at 5:40pm.

JULY 16, 2013 

Tomorrow we will travel to places including Yad VaShem - Israel's Holocaust Museum - and to Har Herzl, Israel's national cemetery, and then, in the evening, we'll celebrate the Phyllis Magerman Bnai Mitzvah Ceremony.  The day begins in sadness, marking Tisha B'Av, a fast day on which we think about alienation from God and the struggles and persecution of the Jewish people in history; it moves to rejoicing as we look towards the future with hope for a world renewed.
