Message from Jeffrey Schulman, Team USA Manager
Greetings from Santiago, Chile on Day 4 of the 13th
Pan American Maccabi Games!
Today marks the halfway point of this amazing Maccabi
experience for our athletes, coaches, staff, and supporters. All of us who were here in Santiago 12
years ago for the 10th Pan American games had high hopes for another
great set of games and our high expectation have been met and exceeded. The city of Santiago has been an amazing

USA is off to a great start.

the opportunity to help lead this incredible delegation of proud Jewish
athletes, staff and supporters.

from abroad, for all that you’re doing to make this such powerful experience
for Team USA.
