Maccabi Games bring athletes here

        Thousands of Jewish youths from five countries are in Cincinnati through Friday for an athletic competition.

        The JCC Maccabi Games kicked off Sunday night at the University of Cincinnati with a show featuring the UC Dance Team, followed by opening ceremonies.

        More than 3,000 people are expected to attend the week's athletic events, including 1,400 teen delegates from the United States, Australia, Canada, Great Britain and Israel.

        Opening ceremonies included a parade of athletes and a tribute to the Munich 11, the Israeli athletes murdered during the 1972 Summer Olympics.

        The athletic events this week are not open to the general public, but participants will be doing philanthropic projects across the Tristate on Tuesday.
