In Their Own Words


Basketball: 14th Maccabiah
Maccabi USA Leadership | Board of Directors

Chuck learned of the Maccabiah Games from his older brother when he was a child, but first got involved as an athlete competing on the Masters Men’s Basketball Team at the 14th Maccabiah Games.  He became hooked on the mission of Maccabi USA – Building Jewish Pride Through Sports.

Chuck has since become very involved as a leader within the volunteer organization of Maccabi USA, as a member of many Maccabi USA Organizing Committees involved with planning Maccabiah and other international Maccabi competitions, and as a member of the Board of Directors.  One of the things that he is most proud of is having his children get involved with Maccabi USA, as athletes and volunteers, so that they too have experienced the power of sports as a way to connect to their Jewish culture and heritage.

Chuck is the founding shareholder of Shechtman Marks Devor PC, which he established in 1978 and serves as its managing shareholder.

Chuck and his wife Ellen live in Wynnewood, PA and have two children.
