French Jews travel to Berlin for momentous Maccabi Games

PARIS – Shlepping their team tote bags up the aisle of Air France flight 1534 on Monday, and wearing red team t-shirts, France’s Maccabi delegation could hardly be  missed.

Just in case, the pilot offered welcoming words before the Airbus departed Paris en route to Berlin for the European Maccabi Games that open on Tuesday night.

“We have on board France’s Maccabi team,” the pilot announced. “In a way, they are representing our country in the Olympics.”
