Prepping To Perform—The Coming Maccabia
Hosted By: Maccabi USA
Inspired by the recent successes of Israeli athletes and other young people around the globe at the summer Olympics? Well, you don’t need to wait another four years as plans are on for the postponed Maccabiah in Israel during Summer 2022. Our friends at Maccabi USA will share some highlights from preparations that are already underway. Through competitive sports, this competition fosters Jewish pride and builds a sense of community through shared bonds that are further strengthened through camaraderie built on the field.
Through developing and promoting national and regional athletic and international activities, they invest in Jewish athletes across the world and provide them with the opportunity to share their heritage and traditions in competitive athletic settings.
We will hear from athletes, a coach and a member of professional staff who will share with us:
*The history, vision and mission of the organization as they look to the post-Olympic future
*The effect of the pandemic on their activities, including athletic recruitment and how they adapted
*The Maccabi experience from the perspective of a coach working solely on the basis of competition
*The vision for the 2022 games in the wake of the global pandemic
