THE MACCABIAH GAMES CELEBRATES 84 YEARS THIS WEEK


84 years ago on Monday the vision of Yossef Yekutieli came to life as the first Maccabiah took place in Israel.  The Games, the first ever held during the British Mandate of Palestine, were opened in Tel Aviv by Mayor Meir Dizengoff, who rode through the streets of Tel Aviv on a white horse. 

The opening ceremony witnessed the release of 120 pigeons; 10 pigeons for each of the 12 tribes of Israel, whose mission was to send the news to the world letting them know about the first Maccabiah.

Almost 400 athletes from 18 countries participated, including over 60 athletes from Arab countries such as Syria and Egypt.

In the past 84 years we have achieved much as the world prepares for the 20th Maccabiah which will take place during the summer of 2017 with the opening ceremony in Jerusalem. The Games will welcome 80 countries with 9500 athletes who will participate in over 40 different sports.
