Edelman created Shofar Maccabi in celebration of the JCC Maccabi Games, an Olympic-style youth sporting event, hosted in Milwaukee in August 2015. The Maccabi Games memorialize the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the 2011 Olympic Games in Munich and therefore the sculpture consists of eleven broken Olympic rings. The sculpture was lit by a torch at the opening ceremony of The Games and now appears in its permanent location outside the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center in Milwaukee.
