Orienteering new sport at the Maccabiah Games

Posted on | March 23, 2015 | Category: News

The Maccabiah Games, which are organised every four years in Israel under the auspices of the Maccabi Federation, is an international Jewish multi-sport event.

In the next Maccabiah Games in 2017 orienteering will be organised as a competitive sport for the first time. This was the final decision of the ISC (International Sports Committee) of the 20th Maccabiah.

In order for orienteering to be part of the coming Maccabiah Games, at least 50 orienteers from 5 countries in addition to Israel must express their interest to participate. If you are Jewish, and interested to potentially participate in the Games, please register yourself as an orienteer at your local Maccabi club in your country and express your wish to take part in the 20th Maccabiah. In addition, please email Doron Kaynar-Kissinger (doronknr AT gmail.com) your details as soon as possible (name, home address, e-mail, age and gender). You will then be get up-to-date about the plans for the Games.
