JCC Maccabi ArtsFest
Through JCC Association’s efforts, the JCC Maccabi Games® have grown to the point where close to 6,000 teens from many different countries participate each summer. We hope to build on this successful foundation and create another opportunity for Jewish teens to meet. This new youth development initiative is designed to attract those teens who have a strong interest in the arts. JCC Maccabi ArtsFest connects thousands of Jewish teens with similar interests to each other, the arts, and their local Jewish Community Centers.
Last summer over 45 JCC’s sent participants to the JCC Maccabi ArtsFest. Our artists participated in developmental workshops in specialties including, Rock, Visual Arts, Sports Broadcasting, Dance, Musical Theater and Jazz. ArtsFest is just one of the tools that your JCC has for identifying today’s teen-artists and can lead to influential programming in your center.
JCC Association is the managing partner for JCC Maccabi ArtsFest and works closely with host communities to develop a special program unique to each community. There are two ways to sign up for JCC Maccabi ArtsFest. Call your local JCC and ask for the delegation head. Find a JCC in your area.
