Take part in the largest Jewish international sports tournament on the face of the planet - the 20th Maccabiah Games in Israel.
We are now looking to recruit Sports Chairs, Managers, Coaches, Doctors, Medical Staff, Junior Managers and athletes for Great Britain.
The Maccabiah Games, referred to as the "Jewish Olympics", were first held in 1932. 390 athletes and 14 nations competed, figures similar to the participation in the very first Olympic Games 36 years before.
In a relatively short time, the Games have grown to become the 3rd largest sporting event in the world, after the Olympics and the Commonwealth Games, and take place every 4 years in Israel. The 20th Games will see over 9,000 competitors from 70 countries participate in 40 sports from 2nd-18th July 2017 (subject to change).
Team Maccabi GB is expecting to send our largest ever delegation of over 500 competitors, managers, coaches, medical staff and management team. Will you be one of them?
