The 2013 opening ceremony for the 19th Maccabiah Games got under way on Thursday evening, and for the first time in its 81 years, Jerusalem hosted the “Jewish Olympics”.

This is also the largest Maccabiah in history, with 10,000 athletes from 21 countries participating and 30,000 visitors in the crowd.

Here’s a short 5 minute history of the Maccabiah games in Israel.
