Meet Team Milwaukee - Alex

March 26, 2014

When you walk into the JCC’s Marcus Pavilion Entrance, you immediately know that our Milwaukee community is getting ready to host the 2015 JCC Maccabi Games.  But before our city can welcome thousands of young Jewish athletes, coaches, and volunteers, we are currently gearing up and getting ready for the 2014 JCC Maccabi Games in Boca Raton, FL.

Milwaukee’s delegation will be a force, and we want you to get to know our JCC Maccabi Games delegation. We asked our teen athletes a few questions so you can get to know them better.
