Maccabi in an Exciting Collaboration with FIDF

By Amy Samin

On Sunday morning Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv took part in a very special reception held in the huge Cleveland Cavaliers complex. The club, together with Maccabi World Union and the Friends of the IDF (FIDF) invited 16 IDF reservists who had been wounded in Operation Protective Edge to the game in Cleveland, and held the event in their honor. The soldiers were greeted by a standing ovation from the 200+ in attendance.

The most touching moment came when Noam Gershoni – an Apache pilot critically wounded in the second Lebanon War who made an amazing recovery and went on to win a gold medal in tennis in the 2012 Paralympic Games in London – addressed the gathering. Gershoni touched everyone present, and they responded with a standing ovation that lasted for several minutes.

Another honored guest was Anthony Parker, a legendary player for both Maccabi and Cleveland. Maccabi was represented by chairman Shimon Mizrahi and the rest of the management, as well as by five of the greatest ever to play for the club: Tal Brody, Mickey Berkowitz, Doron Jamchy, Nikola Vuj?i? and Parker.
