Maccabiah report…or not

Posted on: July 12th, 2017 by Ron Kaplan

Unfortunately, I don’t have the time I used to to post everything about the Maccabiah Games, which began July 4, so I’m trying this — cutting and pasting from my Google alerts on the topic. Sorry, but that’s the best I can do right now and I hope it gives some insight as to the festivities. This is the most recent list. I’ll be working backwards until I catch up.

Carry on. And remember, if you want to learn more about the history of the event, with all due modesty, I literally wrote the book: The Jewish Olympics: The History of the Maccabiah Games.

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

Posted on: June 2nd, 2017 by Ron Kaplan

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

And a shameless self-promotion of my book, The Jewish Olympics: The History of the Maccabiah Games, which was published in 2015 and is “complete” through the 19th Games.

You’ll forgive me for not attributing the articles that came from college newspapers and websites; just too lazy. I also want to clear up something that might not be apparent to non-competitors: “Master” does not mean that someone has achieved a higher level of proficiency in a sport (although they certainly might); it basically means they’re above a certain age. That said, Mazel tov to all.

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.

The History of the Maccabiah Games

New Maccabiah president picked

Posted on: May 10th, 2010 by Ron Kaplan

Robert Spivak, chair of Maccabi USA/Sports for Israel was named president of the 19th World Maccabiah Games in July, 2013 by Guiora Esrubilsky, President of Maccabi World Union in Ramat Gan, Israel. Spivak is the first non-Israeli to be named to the post.

Spivak, a native of Philadelphia, first became involved with Maccabi World Union in the late 1970’s as a volunteer with Maccabi USA/Sports for Israel.  He served in positions of increasing responsibility and was the President of the organization from 1981 through 2001, leading it on a path of unprecedented growth.  He will continue to serve as chair for Maccabi USA while also handling the new position.

“I plan to focus my energy on increasing the international visibility and awareness of the World Maccabiah Games,” Spivak said in a statement.  “Additionally, I will be soliciting corporate sponsorships and patron opportunities to increase the financial viability of the Maccabiah Games to ensure that all qualified athletes from around the world are able to participate in the Games.”

Spivak has developed a plan to start working with Maccabi volunteers around the world to achieve these goals.
