Philadelphia, PA, September 16 – Maccabi USA is excited to announce that the weekend of December 4 & 5, 2010 will be special for all Jewish gymnasts, at the Bart Conner Gymnastics Academy, in Norman, Oklahoma. The weekend will feature a variety of events for Jewish Gymnasts and members of JCC Teams across North America.

It will be a great chance for Jewish Gymnasts from all over North America to meet and share their experiences. Gymnasts from Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Israel have been invited as well. We have planned a reception, Havdallah service and Chanukah celebration, Saturday evening, at the University of Oklahoma Hillel. After the event at Hillel, there will be a banquet for the gymnasts, families and coaches.  The event will be coordinated with the Jewish Federations of Oklahoma City and Tulsa, in addition to other Jewish organizations around the state. There are many sites to see in Oklahoma City, such as Bricktown, The Western Heritage Museum, Murrah Federal Building Memorial, the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame, Home office of International Gymnast Magazine and many other sites.  In addition, the University of Oklahoma has a beautiful campus and is home to the wonderful Schusterman Judaic Studies Program. Come to Norman for a great event!

The Maccabi USA Junior Gymnastics Invitational will help raise funds for the USA Gymnastics teams competing in the 2011 Pan Am Maccabi Games in Brazil, and the USA Gymnastics Team for the 19th World Maccabiah Games. Maccabi USA, sponsor of this event, is a 501-C3, not-for profit organization, located in Philadelphia, PA.
