Posted: 30-Mar-2017 by Maccabi VIC

This year marks 20 years since the 1997 Maccabiah bridge disaster.

Maccabi invites you to a 20th Anniversary Maccabiah Bridge Commemoration, where we will reflect with those affected by the tragedy and remember and honour the friends we lost.

Maccabi has worked hard to find current email addresses for all 1997 Alumni. We know that we have missed a few, so please inform others you know who may not have received an invitation or send their email address to

Following this event, please stay and join us in farewelling the 2017 Australian Maccabiah team. The Maccabiah Games are the pinnacle event in Jewish sports. With our largest ever delegation, this event will provide a chance for the community to wish the Australian Team all the best as they embark on their journey to represent their country at the 2017 Games.
