The Birth of the Maccabiah Games

As Hanukkah approaches, gather ’round the stereo system as Gabe tells the story of the great miracle that was the birth of the Maccabiah Games. Plus: one ice skater’s head-slapping Holocaust costume, and the mixed blessing that is a stereotypically Jewish wrestler.

Menschwarmers is hosted by Gabe Pulver and Jamie Hirsh, and produced and edited by Alex Rose. Michael Fraiman is the supervising producer. Our music is “Brass” by 4bstr4ck3r feat. Daman. You can follow the Menschwarmers on Twitter and check out more podcasts by The CJN Podcast Network here.
