2015 Pan Am Daily Update- January 1

Message from Toni Wortman, Past President

I’ve celebrated Shabbat with Maccabi USA at 8 Maccabiah Games, 7 Pan American Maccabi Games and 4 European Maccabi Games, but I’ve never experienced a Kabbalat Shabbat quite like the one held at the Juegos Panamericanos Maccabi in Santiago this past evening.

Athletes, coaches, mangers, medical personnel, members of the Chilean Games Organizing Committee, representatives of the Chilean Jewish community, Heads of Delegations, MUSA Supporters and Maccabi World Union leaders from Israel and around the world came together to welcome Shabbat at the soccer stadium at the EIM, which overlooks the Andes. There were hundreds of people representing all of the countries participating in Chile.

Celebrating Shabbat on New Year’s Day, sharing the beauty of our Jewish heritage with Jews from around the world, the gracious hospitality of the Chilean organizers and the warm welcome we received from members of the Jewish community made this a truly meaningful and amazing event.

Our participation in these Games demonstrates our support for the Chilean Jewish Community, our dedication to the ideals of Maccabi, our commitment to the continuity of the Jewish people and our unbreakable bond with the State of Israel. Moments like these make me proud to be a part of the Maccabi Movement.

Shabbat Shalom,


Toni Wortman
Past President
