Roye Shelem comes on board with The Sports Rabbi to look back at the week that was in Israeli sports. First we discuss Maccabi Tel Aviv’s big Euroleague win over Olympiacos that breaks an 8 game losing streak. From there we also talk about Hapoel Holon and Guy Goodes’s masterful job of navigating through 3 knockout games which helps them advance to the Champions League Round of 16 Group Stage. Finally we check out where Deni Avdija stands with his future at the Washington Wizards. Will he be shipped out for a second star to play alongside Bradley Beal or will he stay.
Next up was Football Israeli action with Maccabi Haifa signing head coach Barak Bachar through 2024 and widening the gap atop the table in an away victory at Hapoel Beer Sheva. We also break down Maccabi Tel Aviv and Beitar Jerusalem’s cloudy futures and we make our picks for the upcoming week of action.
