In less than one week, I will be joining 250 other individuals from the United States in Berlin, Germany for the European Maccabi Games! I am super excited for this opportunity and promise to enjoy, celebrate and appreciate every moment of it. I will be there representing much more than just me…
Please bookmark this page as I will be updating you on my journey throughout the trip as much as I can. I will also be blogging for the Maccabi USA/Sports for Israel team along with many of my USA teammates. The Maccabi USA website is http://www.maccabiusa.com.
About the European Maccabi Games
From July 27th until August 5th, the 14th European Maccabi Games (EMG2015) will take place in Berlin. The EMG2015 are Europe’s biggest Jewish sports event wih more than 2,000 athletes, coaches and counselors from over 30 European countries and the world. The competitions will be held in 19 sports.
For the first time ever, the European Maccabi Games will take place in Germany – 70 years after the end of the Shoah and the Second World War and 50 years after the establishment of the German – Israeli relations. The EMG2015 will be held at the Olympic Park in Berlin – the same location where German Jews were forbidden to participate in the Olympic Games of 1936 – as well the Half Marathon Race (which I will be racing in)!
