JCC Maccabi Games Begin [Photos]

Well over a thousand people packed into RCC's Eugene Levy Fieldhouse.

The Rockland-hosted JCC Maccabi Games officially kicked off Sunday night with the opening ceremony, held at a packed Eugene Levy Fieldhouse at Rockland Community College.

The 1,200-plus athletes competing in the games this week come from around the world, and each delegation marched into the Fieldhouse to cheering and some occasional flag-waving by the hundreds of parents and supporters in the stands. The actual games start Monday morning with all tournaments finishing up on Thursday.

It was a wonderful, touching, well-organized ceremony. The organizers must be congratulated for a job well done! Listening to Ankie Spitzer and having the one minute of silence followed by Sabina Koss's rendition of Hallelujah was both chilling and thrilling!
