Team Palo Alto kept its momentum going on day two of the JCC Maccabi Games® in spite of the Dallas heat (oy!).
Tradition of the Day: In addition to winning medals in competition, JCC Maccabi Games® athletes can win the Midot Medal for living the Jewish values cherished at the Games:
- Repairing the world/Tikkun Olam
- Open Hearted/Lev Tov
- Jewish Peoplehood/Amiut Yehudit
Delegation Head’s Moment of the Day: I am really enjoying watching our 14U boys’ soccer team, a mixed team with Mexico. The head coach, part of the Mexico delegation, shouts passionately in Spanish while our Palo Alto soccer coach, Shaun, directs the boys in his British accent. The JCC Maccabi Games® is an international movement and it truly feels like an international event at these games. It seems almost like being at the World Cup and I know the three players from our Palo Alto delegation love it.
Scores from all the Dallas JCC Maccabi Games® events can be found on the Games’ official website. Remember to follow along on the OFJCC Teens Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages for pictures and videos of our delegation’s experience throughout the competition.
