History of the JCC Maccabi Games
The JCC Maccabi Games have been offering Jewish teens a unique social, cultural, and life shaping experience since 1982. At this Jewish Olympic style event, each athlete participates in one of fourteen sports, social events, and an opportunity to help others during the weeklong experience, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
The JCC Maccabi Games is an Olympics for Jewish teens, but they serve a larger purpose than athletic competition. The Games also promote community involvement, teamwork, and pride in being Jewish. The Games are the largest Jewish teen event in the world; each summer over 6,000 Jewish teens participate. Over 100,000 teens have benefited from the JCC Maccabi Games since 1982. The energy and excitement makes it a unique and unforgettable experience for every participant, from athlete to volunteers, from coaches to host families.
The JCC Maccabi Games are made possible with the generous help of many volunteers and sponsors who donate time and valuable resources, including our Continental Sponsor, The Coca-Cola Company.
Ages 13-16. Athletes must be 13 or 16 as of July 31, 2012. Sports subject to change and limited by location.
