Simon traveled with the Macabbi Team Canada basketball team to the 2009 Maccabiah Games (the “Jewish Olympics”), held in Israel in July 2009. Captaining a relatively inexperienced team, Farine took charge by leading the tournament in scoring. Facing the U.S. team in the semifinals, Farine and his teammates went up against a team full of professional and Division I players. Coached by former Tennessee Head Coach Bruce Pearl, the U.S. team had no answer for Farine as he faced little resistance on his way to scoring 31 points. Unfortunately, it was not enough to stop the U.S. team from defeating Canada in the semi-finals. Losing only to Israel and the United States, Canada came away with a very respectable 3rd-place finish. Canada’s Head coach John Dore spoke to the media about Farine’s role to the team saying; “Simon was our best player and his game is off the charts right now. He was unbelievable against the Americans.”
After one year at Wisconsin-Green Bay, Simon decided to transfer to the Dalhousie Tigers of the CIS where he felt he would be able to develop more with increased playing time. After redshirting the 06–07 season, Farine was out to prove his doubters wrong in his first season of Canadian university basketball. He averaged 15.9 ppg 5.0 ast 5.8 reb, but was not satisfied by his team’s overall performance.
