Every session Newman holds an entire day of friendly competition to help learn the midah Responsibility called the Maccabiah Games (also known as Yom Sport!)! The entire camp is split into four colors to play for the day and everyone gets decked out to represent their team! The campers compete in frisbee, archery, trivia, swimming, singing, dancing, gaga, basketball and many other things all over camp all day! The age groups are split to compete with each other to keep the games equal and fun for everyone! The whole day is filled with music, fun and sportsmanship! Check out these videos of today’s Maccabiah Games as well as ones from past Maccabiah games!
