Ron Jacobsohn reports from the 19th Maccabiah Closing Ceremony
The ten days of the 19th Maccabiah past in a flash for the 9000 athletes, who came from 78 countries, to participate in the Jewish Olympics. And now it’s time say farewell with a grand closing ceremony the organizers have prepared celebrating Israeli artists who have made it big internationally.
Before the celebrations – the scoreboard:
Team Israel won the most medals with 194 total followed by Team USA with 84 Medals and Team Canada in third with only 14 medals.
At the farewell cocktail we met some of those medal winners and heard about their experience participating at the Maccabiah.
And now that everything has been said and done, the closing ceremony has almost ended and the planning for the next Maccabiah that will take place in 2017 has already began.
