A few weeks ago, Hapoel "Bank Yahav" Jerusalem opened their ONE TEAM group, as part of the team's participation in the EuroCup. ONE TEAM is the Euroleague's social responsibility program that uses basketball to achieve social impact in the community.

One of the social teams that Hapoel operates, with cooperation with Bank Yahav, is in Kiryat Menachem neighborhood. In the team, 23 youth players who participate in a weekly practice, attend the professional team games and compete against other teams who plays in the youth department.

One of the players told us about the activity: "The thing I like the most about playing basketball is the team work. You need your friends in order to score. During the game, it reflects in passes and by communicating between us. We must talk to each other: shoot, help me block that player. Basketball takes out my strengths, it's fun and I have to show effort. Everything is positive in it, outside of court too. Basketball taught me how to cooperate, listen to my friends and to consider what they say. Collaboration helps me and my friends. For example, a friend of mine who fell, I'll help him, whether it's on the field or whether it's in school - to write papers or to take a test".
