Welcome Maccabi Games! After months of planning and preparations, the annual Jewish sports competition will be underway next week Loup JCC. As a proud sponsor of the Loup-hosted Games, the IJN published a special section this week welcoming the Maccabi Games, introducing Denver’s Jewish community to the participating athletes and the Games to our readership. Our selected online feature from the special section is published on our homepage, plus an IJN editorial welcoming the athletes.
A full schedule of the Games – ranging from basketball to volleyball and even bowling! – is available on the JCC’s website. Remember that if you’d like to watch any of the matches, you will need to register for a spectator pass. The opening ceremony is this Sunday at the Ritchie Center; again, registration is required so visit the website or ring up the JCC to make sure you don’t miss the chance to participte in this exciting event!
