Maxim Birbraer (Hebrew: מקס בירבראייר‎; born December 15, 1980) is a Kazakhstan born Israeli professional ice hockey forward who is currently playing for the Swindon Wildcats in the English Premier Ice Hockey League (EPIHL). Birbraer is Jewish. and has played for the Israel national ice hockey team.


Birbraer was born in Ust-Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan, where he lived until the age of 14. His family lived under a non-Jewish sounding surname in those years due to severe local anti-Semitism, and he wasn't told that he was Jewish until his parents decided to move to Israel. Although he had played schoolboy hockey in Russian he assumed that he would have to give up the ice when he was 14 and his family immigrated to Israel, until he discovered an indoor rink in Tel Aviv wehre he played in a junior league. He had lived in Israel for only 8 months when his coach, Paul Rosen, persuaded him to try out for a Canadian league with the result that he spent 2 years playing Tier 2 hockey in Ontario; where Rosen was his legal guardian. He then joined the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League.
