learly, Detroit will have the
best game in town.
Next summer, the Jewish
Community Center of Metropolitan
Detroit will welcome the 2014 JCC
Maccabi Games & ArtsFest for the
fifth time — the only city that has ever
hosted the event so many times.
More than 2,000 participants, their
families and coaches are expected at
the Games, which is the largest gath-
ering of Jewish teens in the world.
The Games will be chaired by Rick
Zussman and Karen Gordon, with
Florine Mark and Joel Jacob serving as
honorary chairs. Opening ceremonies
will be at Joe Louis Arena. The event is
expected to draw 15,000 people.
Of course, hosting a program for
2,000-plus guests takes a bit of plan-
ning. That's where JCC Maccabi Games
& ArtsFest Director Ariella Monson
comes in.
These days, Monson, a native of Ann
Arbor, is busy working to secure the
800 host families and the more than
1,000 volunteers needed to make the
program a success.
"It's easy and fun to become involved,
and volunteers are needed for every
aspect of the event:' she said. "When
you become a host family, you have the
added bonus of getting to know some
great kids and really experience the
Games & ArtsFest firsthand!'
Host families must be Jewish and
will be asked to house two or more
visiting participants; provide breakfast
each day and two dinners during the
week; provide transportation for the
athletes and artists each morning and
each evening to/from either the JCC or
other local venues; provide one social
programming event on Host Family
Night; and attend one orientation

The 2014 JCC Maccabi Games &
ArtsFest's Rick Zussman, co-chair,
Ariella Monson, director, and Gary
Sikorski, security

meeting next summer.
Sports for this year's Games include
baseball, basketball, soccer, volley-
ball, softball, hockey, bowling, dance,
swimming, table tennis and tennis.
And while Detroit is a seasoned host
when it comes to sports, 2014 will
mark the first time the city will wel-
come ArtsFest.
"The ArtsFest is a great addition to
the event!' said JCC Maccabi Games
& ArtsFest Assistant Director Rebecca
Hoffheimer, "and there really is some-
thing for every talent!'
ArtsFest includes acting/improv,
culinary arts, vocal music/glee, dance,
musical theater, rock band, star report-
er and visual arts.
Tryouts for those interested in par-
ticipating in the 2014 JCC Maccabi
Games & ArtsFest will be held in
December and January. For dates and
times, visit www.2014detroit.org or
contact Franci Silver at soccerrcoach@
gmail.com or (248) 505-9007.
Families interested in hosting Maccabi
athletes can call (248) 432-5500 or
