Quite possibly the most enjoyable and most anticipated event of the summer is Maccabi Cup, our camp color war.
During Session 2 this past summer our Maccabi Cup theme was “Everything is Possible”. The Green Dreamers and Blue Imagination faced off in an epic showdown of athletic and creative competitions, all with the hopes of being dubbed the Maccabi Cup Champions.
After two exhausting days of competition and camaraderie, the Blue team was well on their way to being champions. However, much to everyone’s surprise, the Green team took home the trophy after winning the song and cheer battle with a heart-wrenching song.
With the World Series fresh on our minds, it important to recognize how symbolic the championship game was.
After nearly a century of loss, frustration and heartache, Chicago Cubs fans were finally able to rejoice. Winning their first title since 1908, the Cubs became the 2016 Major League Baseball World Series Champions.
This year’s championship proved just how poetic sports are. Baseball, like life, is unpredictable and the unbelievable can become believable when you don’t give up.
As we continue into the Jewish New Year, remember that every single day can bring us something entirely unexpected. May we all discover our own paths to being champions of our lives and exploring what is truly possible.
