The Maccabi Tel Aviv FC Foundation welcomed a Birthright group to Kiryat Shalom that was composed of participants from Ivy League Universities including Yale, Cornell and Harvard along with other prestigious colleges such as Ithaca, Binghamton and more. The special Birthright group called BICEP, Birthright Israel Collaborative Enhancement Project is from the Israel advocacy organization Stand With Us whose mission is to “Support Israel Around The World, Through Education And Fighting Anti-Semitism.”

The students enjoyed a fun and interactive presentation about the History of the Modern Day State of Israel through Maccabi Tel Aviv by Foundation Head Josh Halickman along with a professional style training session on the Kiryat Shalom pitch with Amir Sofer, the Club’s Under-15 coach. This group is just one of many who have come to Maccabi via the Foundation for an educational experience that will never be forgotten.
