JCC Maccabi Experience

The JCC Maccabi Games: an Olympic-style sporting event for Jewish teens, ages 13–17

Give your teen athlete an unforgettable experience of a lifetime! The JCC Maccabi Games are an Olympic-style sporting event for Jewish teens around the world.

This year, there will be two events: Israel (July 5–25, 2023, includes one week of games and a three-week tour of Israel) and Fort Lauderdale (August 6–11, 2023). 

On the field, athletes participate in one of 16 sports. Off the field, the excitement continues with Opening Ceremonies, evening social activities including amusement parks, zoos, host family nights, parties, and dances, all designed to encourage interaction among the athletes who come from around the U.S. and the world.

All athletes participate in a unique community service project, “JCC Cares,” which is independent of their competition, a hands-on project that may serve those in need in the host community and/or teach the athletes something about Jewish and/or Israeli culture.

For more information, contact Maccabi Director Steve Weisbrot at 914.645.5978 or [email protected].
