Some 3,000 Israeli basketball fans are expected to descend on the Greek city of Salonika for the European final four basketball tournament on April 18-20. The fans are coming to watch the Maccabi Tel Aviv team, a tournament participant. The local Jewish community is bracing itself because the games will coincide with Passover, and many of the fans will want to attend seders.
