Rukavytsya joins the club after a season with fellow Israeli side Beitar Jerusalem, and will play in the UEFA Europa League next season after Maccabi Haifa qualified for the second qualifying round thanks to their Israel State Cup final win last month.

Ukraine-born Rukavytsya, who turns 29 later this month, started his A-League career with Perth Glory, before joining FC Twente.
