The Opening Ceremony:

More than 200 athletes, trainers and supervisors formed the largest delegation from MAKKABI Germany in Maccabiah history. The number of participants has grown again by 20 people compared to the previous games.

Conclusion & balance sheet:

Like every 4 years, the games were something very special for our athletes, whether young or old. These games will be remembered by each and every participant for a long time. The athletes could always see the fun and joy during and before the games.

But there was also a lot to experience away from the sports facilities, such as a visit to Beit Theresien in the Kibbutz Givat Chaim, a memorial commemorating the Theresienstadt concentration camp and meeting Zwi Cohen, a survivor and his moving story, at the “Memorial of the 11” in Tel Aviv for the 11 murdered Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics and of course the impressive opening and closing ceremonies of the 2013 Maccabiah.

We would like to thank all athletes for their successful participation.
