The productive volunteer summer is going on! Thus, volunteers often organize open-air events in summer. On August 5, a traditional event “Maccabiah games in Odessa” took place for wards and volunteers of the Hesed Shaarei Zion Charitable Foundation.
At the beginning of August, students and volunteers of the Odessa Volunteer Community and Hesed Shaarei Zion Charitable Foundation organized a common sports event for the wards of the charitable foundation at the Hillel Sports Park.
The Maccabiah games is a cool sporting event for everyone! The name comes from the combination of the words “Maccabi” (one of the Israeli sports clubs) and “games”. So why not to arrange our own type of competition in Odessa?
All participants were divided into two teams, took part in various sports games and solved problems. In addition, the “Hesed” group of cheerleader gave an extraordinary performance at the event. The unexpected arrival of pirates warmed up the atmosphere, as they decided to complicate the task to the participants.
Fresh air, the support of fans and a common goal united two generations into a single whole on this day. There were no losers – friendship won the competition! At the end of the event all participants were awarded certificates for participation.
