More Maccabiah

Posted on: July 13th, 2017 by Ron Kaplan No Comments

As mentioned yesterday, sadly I don’t have the three-to-four hours a day I used to to blog about Jews and sports as part of my former job at the NJ Jewish News, so this is the best I can do for the Maccabiah Games with the limited time now. After all, it’s not like the Olympics or a major tennis event where there are usually a manageable number of Jews to follow. Here everyone is Jewish (or pert near). This catches you up with most of the information over the past few days.
