JCC Maccabi Experience
The JCC Maccabi Games: an Olympic-style sporting event for Jewish teens, ages 13–16
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.
On the field, athletes participate in one of 12 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.
