JCC Macabi Games in Dallas

The JCC Macabbi games are youth sports events hosted at four Jewish Community Centers annually. For 2006 my parents' home town JCC in Stamford, CT will be hosting one of the four games. In preparation my mom visited the 2005 games in Dallas, one of this year's host cities, to watch over 1,200 boys and girls between the ages of 13-16 from the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Israel compete in the four day event. I joined her for the closing ceremonies today at American Airlines Stadium in Dallas.

Here she is carrying the torch with Jocelyn who is on staff at the Stamford JCC and will be coordinating the 2006 games. It isn't a real flame but it was pretty exciting anyway.
