Welcome to the European Maccabi Games!
On behalf of the Team USA European Maccabi Games Organizing Committee, it is our pleasure to invite
you to Budapest as a member of the Maccabi USA Supporters Mission. We look forward to you joining
us in Budapest for the Games and have worked with Gil Travel to put together a wonderful trip that will
allow you to enjoy the Games – as a supporter or Masters Athlete – and experience the best of
Budapest over the course of 9 full days in the city.
As a member of the USA delegation, your trip to Budapest for the Games will be easy on you, as we have
taken care of all the details. From the moment you depart for Budapest, through to your departure, we
have developed a balanced itinerary that will allow you to cheer on your loved ones – or compete – and
experience the history and culture of Budapest. We will provide transportation to competition venues.
Our hotel is centrally located in the heart of the city, a short walk from the Danube River and the historic
Jewish Quarter. You will enjoy a great breakfast every day, have access to our hospitality desk, great
tours, and a unique party that captures the essence of Budapest in its glory days.
We will enjoy the Opening Ceremony at the Hidegkuti Nandor Stadium where thousands of Jewish
voices from around the world will sing Hatikvah as one. There are plenty of opportunities to customize
your experience with an optional tour and on Shabbat, we will enjoy a special Kabbalat Shabbat Service
followed by dinner.
We hope that you will join us in Budapest, as a member of the Maccabi USA Supporters Mission and
experience the Magic of Maccabi!
