Missions Co-Chairs: 16th and 17thMaccabiah
Maccabi USA Leadership
Board of Directors
Suzan and Allen got involved with Maccabi USA because of Allen’s relationship with his high school friend, Bob Spivak. They made their first trip to Israel to experience the 12th Maccabiah Games in 1985. The trip changed their lives. The love and emotion that Suzan witnessed in Israel convinced her that she wanted to be Jewish and she converted when she returned home.
Suzan and Allen have both played active roles in the leadership and organization of Maccabi USA and do so because they believe in the mission of the organization – Building Jewish Pride Through Sports. They see the Games as a great tool, or project, to connect kids to their culture, heritage and the State of Israel.
Suzan and Allen reside in Blue Bell, PA and Jupiter, FL. Allen has four children.
