Maccabi Madness

The Maccabi Movement began in 1895 when the first all-Jewish sports club was formed in Constantinople, Turkey. While the Maccabiah games take place in Israel, the Maccabi games are always in North America. This two-week Olympic-style competition for Jewish teenagers from around the world takes place every four years and has featured many world-class Jewish athletes, including Mark Spitz (swimming), Mitch Gaylord (gymnastics), Ernie Grunfeld and Danny Schayes (basketball), and Brad Gilbert and Dick Savitt (tennis). This year the games take place Aug. 15-20 in Boston.
