MACCABI GAMES

Be a part of something that’s larger than life with the JCC Maccabi Games! This annual event allows athletes to not only compete but also express their Jewish pride.

This year’s games take place on Sunday, May 5 in Philadelphia, PA!


WHAT ARE THE JCC MACCABI GAMES?
The games offer a unique social, cultural, and life-shaping experience. They serve a larger purpose than athletic competition – they promote community involvement, teamwork, and pride in being Jewish. Participants must identify as being Jewish.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT THE DAY OF THE GAMES?
More than 1,100 athletes from JCC’s across the mid-Atlantic will be competing. Opening ceremonies begin at 8:30am with an Olympic-style parade of athletes, followed by round-robin tournaments. The day concludes around 5pm, and lunch will be provided.

WHAT SPORTS ARE OFFERED FOR MINI AND JUNIOR MACCABI?

  • Girls Basketball
  • Boys Basketball
  • Girls Soccer
  • Boys Soccer
