This year, National Hillel Basketball Tournament is thrilled to be partnering with Maccabi USA. For three weeks in the summer, thousands of athletes come to Israel to compete against one another in the Maccabi games. Although there are approximately 10,000 athletes coming from 20 countries, the Maccabi games are focused on creating an inclusive environment in which everyone is able to bond over a shared love of both Israel and Judaism. Maccabi USA’s mission is to encourage U.S. participation in the games. Past participants have included well-known Jewish athletes including Aly Raisman. With the help of Yachad, USA participants aid in raising money for the Maccabi games.
National Hillel Basketball Tournament is dedicated to creating an enjoyable weekend in which participants gather together and create new friendships. Similarly, Maccabi USA is committed to bringing participants to Israel to compete against and form relationships with Jews from all across the world. It is because of this shared passion for bringing Jews together that National Hillel Basketball Tournament is excited to be working with Maccabi USA.
