THE OPENING of the Maccabiah Games meant different things to different people.
For Jerusalem-based philanthropist Della Worms and her family, it was
particularly poignant – because it coincided with the first anniversary of the
death of her husband Fred Worms, a former president and later honorary president
of the Maccabi World Union. Together with other MWU personalities, Fred Worms
had fought hard and long for the opening of the Maccabiah Games to be held in
his beloved Jerusalem, to which he had given so much.Last Wednesday
night his family held a memorial service for him; on Thursday morning they went
to visit his grave; and on Thursday evening they went to the opening of the
Maccabiah at Teddy Stadium.
