7/2/17: 20th World Maccabiah Games Update
Message from Tonja Magerman and Bob Spivak:
Phyllis Magerman B'nai Mitzvah Co-Chairs

The Phyllis Magerman B'nai Mitvah program is one of the highlights of our ISRAEL CONNECT (IC) Program. The athletes are given the opportunity to experience a Bat/Bar Mitzvah; for many, it will be their first time. Three groups of athletes will renew their commitment to their Jewish identity in our B'nai Mitzvah program. 

Our Team Rabbi's held a preparation ceremony class on Saturday for all the 250 athletes who have signed up to participate. Each Maccabiah, our athletes tell us "this is one of the most meaningful moments " of their Israel Connect and Maccabiah Experience.

Monday July 3rd we will be holding our B'nai ceremony at Mini Israel. We will be 900 USA Maccabi athletes strong to witness and participate in this meaningful event.
