Maccabiah More
Than Mere Sport

DAVID TRATNER SPECIAL TO THE JEWISH NEWS

erzliya — The 14th
World Maccabiah
Games is about
Jewish athletes
from around the world
coming together for com-
petition, but as the ban-
ners shout around the
Kfar Maccabiah, "Mac-
cabiah is not just sport."
Steven Rosen and Billy
Berris, two masters bas-
ketball players from the
Detroit area got a lot
more out of the
Maccabiah Games than
just a chance to play bas-
ketball.
Both were moved by
the opening ceremonies,
where thousands of
Israelis cheered for them
as they entered the sta-
dium with the United
States delegation.
"It's an exhilarating
thing to be associated
with," Mr. Berris said.
"Fifty thousand fellow
Jews from all over the
world cheering sent
chills up and down my
spine. The feeling is
indescribable."
"Marching in with
other Jewish athletes
was a neat experience,"
said Mr. Rosen, who had

the added thrill of walk-
ing with his brother
Jerry, who competed in
the masters swimming.
"Never in my life as an
athlete have I felt the
equivalent of that feel-
ing, the Israelis cheering
for us and giving pins
and hats to the people in
the stands," he said.

"Never in my
life have I felt
the equivalent of
that feeling."

Mr. Rosen said he was
proud to be Jewish, espe-
cially after hearing the
large crowd sing
Israel's
"Hatikvah,"
national anthem.
When Mr. Rosen was
not shooting hoops he
had a chance to join his
relatives in Rehovot for
Shabbat dinner.
Mr. Berris had a
chance to visit the
Western Wall when he
was not on the court and
although he had been to
the Wall 20 years ago, he
was still moved by the
experience. ❑

Druze Community
Holds Convention

United Nations (JTA) — A
top Israeli diplomat here

was in Miami last week, for
a convention whose central
focus was the threat posed
by intermarriage.
Intermarriage within the
Druze community, that is.
Bahij Mansour, the first
secretary at the Israeli Mis-
sion to the United Nations,
was one of two Israelis
among the 400 delegates to
the annual convention of the
American Druze Society.
He concentrated his dip-
lomatic efforts on successful-
keeping political issues off
table.

Of an estimated 2 million
Druze around the world,
85,000 live in Israel — and
only 12,000 in the United
States.

Within the Druze religion,
said Mr. Mansour, "no one
can get married outside the
community."

Nonetheless, in America
some do, posing the serious
question of what happens to
the children of the mixed
marriages.

"That's the problem of
their community," said Mr.
Mansour.
