Will Bynum, the Detroit Pistons icon whose NBA career was jump-started at Maccabi Tel Aviv, feels it's time to repay the favor to Israel. Bynum will conduct the Will Bynum Summer Youth Basketball Camp from August 7 to August 9.
The first two days of the three-day camp will take place in Nahalal, a small and unique central Galilee agricultural community.
The Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit has teamed up with Bynum on next month's initiative. The federation considers the central Galilee "Michigan's home in Israel." It's part of a project called Partnership2Gether of the Jewish Agency for Israel and the Jewish Federations of North America, which connects global Jewish communities to communities in Israel.
