February 18, Maccabi Ukraine launched in Kiev the project “Life and achievements of Jewish athletes – an example for modern Maccabi”. At this stage of the project, which is being implemented with the support of the Dutch Jewish Humanitarian Fund (JHF) and the European Maccabi Confederation (ECM), 25 representatives of Central Ukraine took part.
The participants will research, collect, record and share stories of Jewish athletes. They will analyze the role of sports and athletes in the development of Jewish life and will record the history of athletes, who played an active role in its revival in Ukraine.
The aim of the project is to motivate Jewish youth to work actively on restoring our history and activating the activities of Jewish communities on concrete examples.
