On The Map presented by Maccabi Canada
Last weekend Maccabi Canada presented an inspiring, sold out evening with Mr. Tal Brody as part of the Toronto Israeli Film Series. Following the 9th Maccabiah Games, Brody, a Maccabi USA Alumni, gave up a promising NBA career to captain Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball in Israel. The movie "On the Map" recounts the historic Maccabi Tel Aviv win over CSKA Moscow in the 1977 European Championship, and its consequential effect on Israeli basketball, Israeli politics, and Israel as a whole. We t...

Catchball comes to Toronto
Three teams, three passes, 3 seconds, and over was the foot print for Maccabi Canada’s first inter-league Catchball tournament this week.  And what a tournament!

In the winter of 2010, when he was already a standout forward with the Hamilton Red Wings of the Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL), his skills got him noticed by the people putting together the Canada East Under-19 team that was going to Penticton, B.C., to compete in the World Junior A Challenge. Trouble was, Hyman had a big assignment due ...
A Maccabiah Like No Other
Two months ago today, the Canadian delegation arrived back in Toronto after the incredible 20th Maccabiah Games. Having time to reflect back on the honour and privilege it was to lead a delegation of 600 people on this exceptional journey, I can certainly say that although we went to Israel to watch Canadian athletes make history by achieving sports excellence, at the same time, many of us experienced more of a spiritual, life changing event, rather than an athletic competition. During the...
