Over 650 athletes descended on the Capital Region for the 2017 Maccabi Games. Over twenty delegations from as far away as Israel, Mexico and Canada all called Albany home for the week of August 7th – 11th . Nine young journalists took part in the Star Reporter program. The Star Reporters were responsible for putting together a daily newsletter called “The Daily Torch.” They reported on the games – digging deep to get the sights and sounds of the daily happenings. The Star Reporters had never interviewed anyone before nor had they faced a deadline of putting together a daily newspaper. Each of the young journalists had a story to tell about their time at the Games.
