Canada Israel Hockey School


In March, the JCC of Greater Washington hosted teens from the Canada Israel Hockey School for a 10-day visit to our area. The trip included a game with our JCC Maccabi team, dinner and a game with the  Charles E. Smith JDS team, practice skates with NHL and Olympic players, a program with BBYO, visits to the monuments, the White House and the Canadian embassy, a game with NHL alumni and attendance at a Washington Capitals game.
