On 11 July 2013 after 4 years in the senior side of Netanya he moved to Maccabi Tel Aviv for a fee of $558,000. Omri signed a three-year contract with Tel Aviv. 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. He was lined-up in the historic 3-0 away win in Kiryat Eliezer Stadium against Maccabi Haifa in the 3rd gameweek of the Israeli Premier League, after Maccabi had failed to win there for more than 9 years. 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.
