Stuart Greenberg, 19th Maccabiah USA Paralympic Chairman, is aggressively working to recruit qualified Jewish disabled athletes to compete at the 19th World Maccabiah Games in Israel in July. He is specifically looking for athletes to participate in Wheelchair Basketball, Hand Cycling, Half Marathon, Swimming, Table Tennis and Tennis:
My expectations are to be competitive and represent the American Jewish Community with the highest standards of sportsmanship. I want to also do my best in making the journey to Israel a safe and fun filled experience the athletes will always remember on and off the field of play.

He was the Director of the Carousel House Recreation Center for People with Disabilities from 1992-2003 and has extensive experience working with athletes with disabilities.
