As part of an athletic tradition that is becoming an annual autumn ritual for Jewish sports fans, the Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team will again play exhibition games in the United States. A game at Madison Square Garden on Sunday, Oct. 4, at 12:30 p.m., against Euroleague Basketball rival Emporio Armani Milan, will follow an Oct. 1 contest between the two teams in Chicago’s United Center.

The big stadium seemed to be levitating; looking up, framed against storm clouds, 90,000 Jews were on their feet, then were rising to their toes in unison, once, twice, three times, calling out loudly, “kadosh, kadosh, kadosh.” Some took out cell phones, calling those that that were not present, “you have to hear this,” holding phones in the air, to hear 90,000 call out the “Shema,” or answer “Yehay Shmay Rabba” to Kaddish.
