Rachel Kochen takes out Golden Boot Award for Season 2018 - In her VCE Year!
Studying for VCE and playing football in the same year brings it own sorts of challenges but to take out the Golden Boot award in that year as well shows a different level of commitment.

That is exactly what Maccabi FC women’s member Rachel Kochen did in season 2018 and at only 18 years old to her great credit.


Farewell to a Maccabi Mensch
The Maccabi community mourns the sudden passing of Joshua Ferenbach.

Josh was a proud and integral part of the Maccabi family, being involved in All Abilities, both Junior and Senior AJAX football clubs, and a number of other programs and activities. We will greatly miss his love of sport, his sense of humour and his wonderful nature.
A shout out to Nicole Brown , Maccabi staff member, who is currently trekking in Nepal.

Well done and we are so proud of your achievement.

Hope you're having a great time and missing you in the office !
