A video contest on the YouTube Web site will introduce Israel's faces and sites to the fans at a New York Knicks-Maccabi Tel Aviv exhibition game in Manhattan next month. The Israeli Consulate in New York announced this week that the winning videos will be played on the big screens at Madison Square Garden during the basketball game on October 11. Tel Aviv has beaten five NBA teams in the past and is the only international side to defeat a professional NBA side on its home court, beating the Toronto Raptors 105-103 in 2005. Attendees will be asked to select their favorite video, and the America Israel Friendship League will present its creator with a round trip flight between Tel Aviv and NY. The game will benefit the American Friends of Migdal Ohr, which operates a youth village in Migdal Ha'emek and helps more than 6,500 orphaned, abused, underprivileged and new immigrant children. The YouTube contest is open to participants throughout the world. Participants are asked to submit a 30 second video to YouTube about "Israeli Sites & Faces" by September 30. Participants can receive more information on how to submit their videos at www.isrealli.org/maccabi, the New York consulate's blog.
