Maccabiah Update

Posted on: November 27th, 2018 by Ron Kaplan No Comments

It’s been a while since I posted any news about the Maccabi sports movement, including the Maccabiah Games. Here’s an attempt to remedy.

You can see that the Maccabi movement in Great Britain is very active. One of my regrets during my recent trip to England was not being able to visit them, as well as missing out on the British Baseball Federation. Oh, well, maybe next time.

Finally, On December 9…

 

You can’t click on the image to access the page, so just drop them an email or call ’em up.

Here’s a piece from the NJ Jewish News I wrote about Jeff Bukantz and other locals who participated in the 2013 Games. I know there are other stories about JB, including a discussion of his book about his dad, Daniel, himself a fencing legend, but unfortunately they don’t appear to be on the NJJN website.

And finally, finally, some shameless self-promotion: if you are interested in having me speak to your synagogue or group about my book, The Jewish Olympics: The History of the Maccabiah Games (or any of my other books for that matter), drop me a line and let’s chat.

Oh, the places you’ll go

Posted on: October 5th, 2018 by Ron Kaplan

Had a great time in Old London Town last week. Tried to get some baseball stuff going over there, but it was a fool’s errand. The British Baseball Federation website had an address that was years-old. I found that out the hard way, making a trip out there in hopes of exchanging a copy of 501 Baseball Books for a team cap. Alas, ’twas not to be.

But I did give a the book to the Kennsington Hotel library, so I was able to accomplish at least part of my “mission.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While at the Kennsington, my wife and I thought we might try to go to a local synagogue. As we used the hotel computer to search for something suitable (we neglected to bring along clothing appropriate to going to shul), we also made the acquaintance of Ken and Lynn Tepper, a lovely couple from Toronto who overheard out conversation. Landsmen! Ken asked if I happened to be the Ron Kaplan who wrote Hank Greenberg in 1938, which he had read. In addition, his son — who participated and coached in several Maccabiah Games for Team Canada — had read my book on the history of that institution. Small world.

Our encounter reminded me of a scene from one of my favorite movies, That Thing You Do, when Guy Patterson, the group’s drummer meets his idol, legendary jazz man Del Paxton who’s playing at an LA club. The cocktail waitress, brings him over to Paxton and some cronies, saying, “This kid has actually heard of you.”

Maccabiah mentions: An occasional look at who’s going to the Games

An occasional look at who will be participating in the upcoming 20th Maccabiah Games in Israel…

And a shameless self promotion for my book, The Jewish Olympics: The History of the Maccabiah Games.

 

Kicking up their heels for Maccabiah

Posted on: January 5th, 2017 by Ron Kaplan

Hard to believe the 2017 Maccabiah is just a few months away. And because these are the 20th games, you know it’s going to be a major deal.

Fundraisers and tryouts are already under way. Here’s a piece about an octet of athletes from a dojo in New York that are already gearing up for the competitions.

Black belt members of the Warren Levi Martial Arts dojo in Cedarhurst. Levi is at far right.

For those looking to catch up with the story behind the quadrennial event, I humbly offer The Jewish Olympics: The History of the Maccabiah Games. Who knows, maybe I’ll be updating it after July.

through what I assume will be the last round of formal edits with the publisher for The Jewish Olympics.

Now can I relax a bit?

The last couple of days have been almost a cartoon. Picture a circular conveyor belt: I get the chapters back with revisions to accept or reject, etc. So I work on those and send them back. Then they send them back again, incorporating the changes, for my approval. Then I send it back to them, with a few little tweaks. Then they send them back to me. All this in very short time.

Kinda like this, without the calories:

So now it goes to production for layout. Looking forward to see that step. Then  they make the Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) that get sent to reviewers

I have secured the participation of a well-known sports journalist for the foreword, though I hesitate to mention the name at this point since it isn’t in our hands yet. Next come those “advance praise”/blurbs you see on the cover or in PR materials.

Looks like this thing is actually going to happen (knock on wood).
