Maccabi GB, in partnership with UJIA, has announced a squad of 65 athletes and 11 managers that will travel to Rockland, New York to represent Team GB at this summer’s JCC Maccabi Games.
Following on from last year’s successful Games in Philadelphia, the GB delegation will once again be led by Brian and Helena Green.
The Greens were delighted to be asked to head the delegation for a third time and feel this year’s squad will be just as successful as the 2011 one.
Brian Green said: "We are absolutely delighted with the quality of the 64 athletes that make up our squad as well as the management team that we have put in place.
“This year we are particularly pleased to be taking a dance team to compete in an international tournament representing Maccabi GB for the very first time. We will also be represented in football, swimming, tennis lacrosse and golf.
"We are very confident of returning home with a haul of medals and, more importantly, plenty of new Maccabi friends."
The Games are a mix of sporting competition and social activities for the 1,000 plus athletes from around the world to engage in and meet other Jewish teens.
