Gil Travel involvement with 19th Maccabiah Games in Israel

Posted by Iris Hami on July 16, 2013

This July 18th marks the opening ceremony for the The 19th Maccabiah Games in Israel where about 32,000 people are expected to attend. Gil Travel works closely in conjunction with Maccabi USA and Maccabi World Union to organize travel for the athletes and supporters of the Maccabi Games in Israel, Australia, South America and Europe. The US has the largest delegation of athletes and supporters to the Maccabiah Games. After attending the 18th Maccabiah Games 4 years ago in Israel, Macabi Carasso, 16 years old, "was struck then by the realization that Jews live in lands he didn’t expect. His “aha moment” came upon seeing Azerbaijan’s flag, which got him wondering which countries with Jewish populations did not send delegations to the games." Carasso has helped to bring 21 new countries to Israel's Maccabiah Games, visiting 18 countries between June 2011 and January of this year, in an effort to recruit Jewish athletes to participate in the quadrennial sports competition that dates back to 1932.
