Desert Hockey

The USA edged the home team by a final score of 2-1 to win the first International Jewish Hockey Championship, a tournament that brought together Jewish hockey players from the US, Canada, Israel and France for a week in Israel.

Organizers hope that the event and its success will serve as a precursor to the inclusion of ice hockey in the Maccabi Games, an Olympic-like tournament that brings together Jewish athletes from around the world every four years.

Even in the middle of the desert, hockey lives on - it's a beautiful thing, and nice to see fellow members of the tribe dispelling the myth that we Jews (myself not included) are not athletic ;)

Congratulations to Team USA and all the participants of this very special event!

Thanks for having me! It was a lot of fun and I'd definitely come on in the future, provided you can put up with my insane ramblings a second time...
