My Message
Every four years, talented Jewish athletes from all over the world meet in Israel for The Maccabiah Games and display courage, determination, sportsmanship and most of all Jewish pride.

I am honored and excited to have qualified and have been chosen to represent Canada in the U18 Men's soccer team at the 19th Maccabiah Games, July 2013. At the Maccabiah Games, “The Jewish Olympics”, athletes compete in over 40 different sports and celebrate our Jewish heritage and our love, support and connection to Israel. I will be part of a world delegation of more than 8,000 Jewish athletes. Our Canadian team will be composed of over 600 athletes, coaches, medical and support staff. The Maccabiah is the 3rd largest sporting event in the world and is the most significant social tradition of the Jewish people and the Zionist Movement in recent generations.

Maccabi Canada is a volunteer based national registered amateur sports organization that strives to promote Jewish identity and a strong bond with Israel by using sport as a medium. Through the promotion of athletic, cultural and educational programs, Maccabi Canada has provided a way for me to connect with my Jewish roots and with Israel.

There is no feeling like the one an athlete experiences, playing to represent their country. The opportunity to compete against the best Jewish athletes in the world, meet lifelong friends and experience growing from the fine athletes of today into the leaders of tomorrow.

Please support my journey and help me realize my dream of proudly representing Canada in soccer by donating to Maccabi Canada in my name. Any amount will get me closer to my goal, and is greatly appreciated.
