European Maccabi Games

Robert Szemere, Board member at Migwan, participated at the European Maccabi Games in Budapest, where he finished 5th in the Half-Marathon.

“Being part of the Swiss team and competing in a Half-Marathon  in the city where I was raised was very special. More than 2000 athletes participated at the Games among them 40 from Switzerland. It was a truly memorable week with plenty of cultural activities beyond the sport events. We were all a big community. On Friday afternoon we visited the biggest Synagogue of Europe where  we listened excerpts from the traditional Shabbat evening service liturgy presented by the choir of the Synagogue.”
The Swiss delegation won 17 medals among them gold medals in horse-riding and running.  Victoria Levy, a 15 years-old talent won a silver medal in golf after a Hole-in-One. Her younger sister won the bronze. So kids, it is not too early to prepare for the 2021 Games which will be in Israel!
