Maccabi NSW appoint All Abilities Co-ordinator

Posted: 15-Dec-2016 by Maccabi NSW

Maccabi NSW is pleased to announce that Ezra Mizrahi has been appointed to the role of All Abilities Coordinator, to start in early 2017.

The ‘All Abilities Program’ will seek to broaden the range of sports & recreational opportunities for Jewish people living with a disability. Thanks to a JCA allocation, the program has received a significant boost that is allowing Maccabi to appoint a part-time program coordinator.

Ezra has years of experience working in the disability services sector and has recently been working with Jewish Care. Maccabi is excited to have Ezra join the team and help to drive the program forward.

The All Abilities program has already had its first event, entering a team in the recent Maccabi MS Swimathon, wherein participants had a fun time in the pool while also helping to raise money for MS research.

Mizrahi says he is looking forward to meeting Maccabi's members and connecting with the community.

"I feel the best part of my role will be having the ability to connect with members of the community. Maccabi members and volunteers are such an integral part of the organisation, and I look forward to working closely alongside community members in this role.

"I believe Maccabi is such an integral organisation within the Jewish community. Having the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of sports teams, while also being able to maintain and connect through a shared Jewish identity is something which I believe strengthens our community overall. Further, I am incredibly proud to be part of an organisation which places a strong emphasis on inclusion in sport, such as with the All Abilities program."

In 2017, Maccabi will be looking to hold a series of events & regular activities to allow Jewish people living with a disability (of all ages) to participate in sports & recreation.

If you would like to be involved in this program (volunteers are welcome), please email danielk@maccabi.com.au
