About the JCC Maccabi Experience
Since 1982, the JCC Maccabi Games have been providing Jewish teens, ages 13-16 (by July 31, 2020), 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! The upcoming 2020 JCC Maccabi Games will be taking place in beautiful, sunny San Diego. Each participant will be joining the San Diego Delegation in this annual celebration of Jewish identity, values, and community.
