Hasmonea Jewish Sports Club
Hasmonea Jewish Sports Club in Wroclaw offers regular sports education and sports activities to the local Jewish community, promoting a healthy lifestyle without distinction of age or sex.
Hasmonea was founded in 1908 in Lviv (then Poland) and before World War II it was the second largest and the most successful sports club in Poland. Currently, the club is located in the city of Wroclaw and led by Cukunft Jewish Association. The club offers regular sports education and sports activities to the local Jewish community. Its aim is to promote a healthy lifestyle without distinction of age or sex.
The project involves the organization of regular Jewish sports activities (basketball, volleyball, chess, badminton, bridge, horse riding and shooting trainings) for all Jews in Wroclaw, Lower Silesia Region and Lodz interested in sports and fitness, as well as an organisation of sports shabbatons and trainings in order to integrate Jewish sportsmen with other local Jewish communities and encourage a healthy lifestyle and Jewish integration through sport and outdoor activities.
The Hasmonea Wroclaw football team consists of boys and girls from small Jewish communities in the Lower Silesian Region of Poland. In June 2018, the club co-organised the Wilimowski Football Tournament for children from national and religious minorities in Poland, bringing together five U-14 teams from the German, Jewish and Ukrainian minorities.
