JCC Maccabi Games®
The JCC Maccabi Games®—five days that can change the lives of Jewish teens 13 to 16 years old—have been doing just that for more than 30 years. During JCC Maccabi™, teens from communities around the globe are immersed in a sports and recreation program imbued with Jewish values and experiences. The goal of the JCC Maccabi Games® is to contribute to the maintenance and enrichment of Jewish identity in youth and to the development of democratic values and leadership through healthy competition and sportsmanship. The JCC Maccabi Games®, in partnership with its sister program JCC Maccabi ArtsFest®, is the largest annual gathering of Jewish teens in the world and has now influenced over 130,000 Jewish youth in North America and around the world.
