The RE-MATCH is on in 2023

If we raise $500k before Dec. 31, Stuart will match it again!

In 2022, Maccabi USA alum Stuart Weitzman made a gift of $4.5M to match the $2.5M we raised to start the endowed Stuart Weitzman Scholarship Fund. This need-based scholarship pool will help young Jews to participate in the life-changing Maccabiah experience in Israel regardless of their financial means.

The initiative was such a success that Stuart has generously offered a RE-MATCH. If we can raise $500,000 before December 31, 2023, he will match it and we will add another $1M to his namesake fund! You can DONATE ONLINE HERE or use the link below – just make sure to write “Weitzman Fund” in the Gift Notes box.

The Maccabi USA Family stepped up in a big way last year, and we hope you will again. By creating an $8M scholarship endowment, we will distribute more than $1.25M in need-based scholarships every Maccabiah cycle in perpetuity. The Maccabiah is the largest gathering of Diaspora Jewry in the world and a transformational opportunity that uses sports to build Jewish identity, community, and connection to Israel. Including Maccabi USA’s signature Israel Connect educational program, this three-week experience leaves a lasting and positive impact on Jews of all backgrounds.

Stuart believes cost should never be a barrier for participation, and we know you feel the same.
