Maccabi USA Rugby Release

Save the date of March 3rd and join us in Las Vegas for the induction of the inaugural class for the Maccabi USA Rugby Hall of Fame. We are planning this in conjunction with the World Rugby 7’s Series and Maccabi USA Rugby’s debut at the club/all-star tournament. The Hall of Fame event will be a cocktail reception Friday night.

Maccabi USA Rugby made its debut at the 1985 World Maccabiah Games winning a Bronze. Since that time, several hundred Jewish Ruggers have suited up for Maccabi USA Rugby at the World Maccabiah Games, Pan Am Games and various matches and non-Jewish tournaments in North America. The highlight of the program was winning the Gold Medal in 15’s at the 1997 World Maccabiah Games. It is only appropriate to begin the Hall of Fame marking the 20th anniversary of this historic event. At the last Games, Maccabi USA Rugby won the first ever Gold in 7’s and a Bronze in 15’s. The 2017 squad is coached by Shawn Lipman and is looking to connect the Alumni with the active squad in Vegas to celebrate Maccabi USA Rugby.

Our inaugural inductees will be Jordan Weinstein, Jeff Simon, Craig Levine and Jeff Ebner
