About the JCC Maccabi Games

Since 1982, the JCC Maccabi Games have been providing Jewish teens, ages 13-16 (by July 31, 2019), with a life-shaping experience based on Jewish values and healthy competition. Teens participate in Olympic-style Opening Ceremonies, home hospitality, sports competitions against other delegations, a day of Tikkun Olam, as well as celebratory parties each night. Participants get to meet thousands of Jewish teens from all around the world and experience an action-packed week they will never forget!
