Message from Lou Moyerman, General Chairman
some of Team USA’s flights were delayed, everyone will arrive safely. As I sit
here writing this note, my excitement for the 2015 Pan American Maccabi Games
is reaching a crescendo.
2003 Pan American Maccabi Games, which I attended, were also held in Santiago.
The Estadio Israelita Maccabi (EIM), which is the main hub of these Games, is
as beautiful and organized as I remember.
begins tomorrow for many of the USA Teams, and it will be hot one, so
be sure to stay hydrated. We have a dedicated medical and athletic training
staff… hydrated athletes will only make their jobs easier!
Let me remind
everyone that the Pan American Maccabi Games are about strengthening Jewish
identity, forming lasting bonds with fellow Jews from the USA and abroad, and
creating lifelong memories. Sports are merely the vehicle by which we
accomplish these objectives.
It has been my
privilege and pleasure to serve as the Maccabi USA Chair for these Pan American
Maccabi Games. I look forward to the upcoming competitions and witnessing the
“Magic of Maccabi” occur in Chile!
Please stay tuned
as we keep you up-to-date on all that we are doing over the next week plus.
Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
