Mac­cabi chair plays long game

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY -

EVO­LU­TION RATHER than revo­lu­tion is the goal of the new Mac­cabi GB chair­man, David Pin­nick, who suc­ceeds Michael Ziff fol­low­ing his fouryear ten­ure.

By trade an es­tate agents’ man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, the north Lon­don grand­fa­ther has been in­volved in Mac­cabi ac­tiv­i­ties since play­ing in its football league from the age of 16. More re­cently, he was GB’s gen­eral team man­ager for the 2013 Mac­cabiah and an or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee mem­ber for this year’s Euro­pean Mac­cabi Games in Ber­lin.

Heart­ened by

David Pin­nick the suc­cess of Mac­cabi-or­gan­ised cross-com­mu­nal events such as the an­nual fun run — now in­volv­ing 50 char­i­ties — Mr Pin­nick said the or­gan­i­sa­tion would be con­sid­er­ing “ways to find ad­di­tional events and pro­grammes that grab the com­mu­nity’s at­ten­tion”.

It cur­rently works with more than 100 part­ners and “reaches out to over 40,000 peo­ple each year via a broad spec­trum of sport, health and well-be­ing pro­grammes and events. We want to in­spire peo­ple to be healthy and ac­tive in a uniquely Jewish at­mos­phere.”
