If sports has the power to transcend cultures and countries, then playing for a national team has the power to transform hearts and minds.
This is a story about young Jewish women who are on journeys of self-discovery. It is also a story about elite female athletes who are using the game they love to forge deeper and stronger connections to their Jewish identity and the country of Israel. Ultimately, it is a story about “coming home” by representing Israel at the highest levels of international competition.
To realize these dreams, we need your support. Twenty-nine women, ages 16 to 26, are currently preparing mentally and physically to compete for Israel at the European Softball Championships this summer in the Czech Republic and Spain. With limited financial support from the Israeli government, these women must rely on the generosity of family, friends, and supporters like you. Please consider giving today, contributions of any amount are deeply appreciated, and all donations are tax deductible. With the help of Jewish National Fund-USA (JNF-USA), our dreams of winning the European Championships, and ultimately a World Championship, can become a reality!
