A team of scouts is scouring the Diaspora for the ideal single Jewish man for a new Israeli reality television show. Once selected, the bachelor, who according to producers preferably will be good looking and "financially secure," will come to Israel for the summer, when 15 young Israeli women will compete to capture his heart.
"We all grow up in Jewish houses and we know the dream of Jewish mothers is that their son finds a nice Jewish girl," said Gadi Veinrib, a producer for the show, to be called -- what else? -- "A Nice Jewish Boy."
The Jewish Community Center (JCC) is on the lookout for teen athletes who want to compete in the 2003 JCC Maccabi Games, a week-long international Jewish youth summer games competition, to be held Aug. 8 through Aug. 15.
This year, 70 local athletes will be able to participate in games to be held in Houston and St. Louis, said Matt Lebovits, a Maccabi coordinator. This year's sports include boys basketball and soccer (for those 14 and under), boys and girls soccer (for those 16 and under), girls volleyball (16 and under), baseball, tennis, dance and swimming.
