he 2013 JCC Maccabi Games
and Arts Fest are several
months away, but it isn't too
early to get ready for them.
Prospective Detroit Maccabi ath-
letes and artists ages 13-16 and their
families are invited to an organi-
zational meeting at 3 p.m. Sunday,
Dec. 16, in Handleman Hall at the
Jewish Community Center in West
Coaches and officials will be there
supplying information and answering
questions about tryouts, auditions and
the two host locations.
Austin, Texas, will be a host site
from July 28-Aug. 2, and Orange
County, Calif., will be a host site from
Aug. 5-9. ArtsFest will be held in
The Detroit Maccabi organizational
meeting was traditionally held in mid-
January. There are logistical reasons
for the switch.
"Our tryouts are about a month ear-
lier [in early January] than they used
to be, and we wanted the kids to have
more time to prepare for them than
they used to have — they won't need
to rush:' said Franci Silver, who has
taken over as Detroit Maccabi commit-
tee chair from Harold Friedman.
Most Detroit Maccabi tryouts are
held at the JCC. By holding them in
early January, Silver said, they won't
conflict as much with JCC youth
activities including the popular Kenny
Goldman basketball league.
Boys flag football and boys and girls
lacrosse have been added to the list of
Maccabi sports, and Silver is confident
Detroit will be well represented in all
Other Maccabi sports are baseball,
basketball, bowling, dance, golf, inline
hockey, soccer, softball, swimming,
table tennis, tennis, track and field,
Also new this year for Detroit

The offer is good through Friday, Dec.
Silver, an attorney, has been
involved with the Maccabi Games
since 2008. She served as co-soccer
commissioner that year when Detroit
was a host site.
The West Bloomfield resident
was the Detroit Maccabi girls soccer
coach from 2009-2012 and the Detroit
Maccabi sports chair for 2012. The
sports chair is mainly responsible for
signing up coaches and being their
liaison to the committee.
Friedman left his committee chair
job with Detroit Maccabi because he's
the Team USA sports co-chairman for
the World Maccabiah Games that will
be held next year in Israel.
Funds are needed to help Team
USA athletes go to Israel. Send a
check made out to "Maccabi USA" to
Friedman at 24 H Southport Lane,
Boynton Beach, FL 33436.
"Now more than ever, it's important
for the worldwide Jewish community
to come together as one and demon-
strate its solidarity with Israel and Jews
everywhere Friedman said.
