Team Philadelphia has arrived in Israel for Maccabi!


Dear Friends,

Team Philadelphia has arrived in Israel for the JCC Maccabi Games! This year is the first time in a decade that the games are being held in Israel, and we are so excited to be a part of it. Our 38 talented Jewish teen athletes and 5 coaches are ready to represent our community and showcase their skills – and I am thrilled to be joining them in person on Sunday to cheer them on!

A gigantic thank you to our Director of Engagement and Team Philadelphia Maccabi Delegation Head, Barrie Mittica. Her leadership and dedication have been instrumental in preparing our athletes, coaches, and volunteers for this incredible experience.

Join us in following Team Philadelphia’s Maccabi adventure! Stay up-to-date by following the Philadelphia Maccabi Instagram and Facebook accounts. We will also share blog posts on our website, capturing the highlights. Following the games, Team Philadelphia will tour Israel for two weeks! This immersive experience will deepen our team’s connection to their Judaism and create lasting memories.

Let’s cheer on Team Philadelphia and show our support! Follow the Philadelphia Maccabi social media accounts, check our website for updates, and spread the word!

Good luck, Team Philadelphia!

Shabbat Shalom,
