He made his debut for the club on 30 July 2013 in an away Champions League match against F.C. Basel. Ben Harush started the season well, after giving a chance in the first team line-up due to an injury of Maccabi's original left-back, Mané.

His performances for Maccabi at the start of the season granted him a newly call for the national team, and he was lined-up in the away match against Portugal on 11 October 2013. Ben Harush scored his debut goal for the club during the away match on 23 November 2013, against Hapoel Haifa.
