Maccabi Games

MACCABI GAMES

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

2023 MACCABI GAMES

Ages: 12-17 years
The Maccabi 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. This Olympic-style Jewish experience offers sports competitions, opening and closing ceremonies, community service, events, and the opportunity for teens to create connections, friendships, and memories that will last a lifetime!

The 2023 Maccabi Games will be taking place in Israel, July 5-25, and Fort Lauderdale, Florida at the David Posnack JCC, August 6-11. We will be sending athletes to both locations. If you are interested in trying out for our teams, please fill out our form here. Sports offered at the games include baseball, basketball, flag football, ice hockey, lacrosse, soccer, swimming, table tennis, tennis, and volleyball.

Athletes will attend meetings, practices, and team events before and during the Maccabi event. Please note, if the athlete attends sleep away camp, they will be required to leave camp to attend the Maccabi Games from start to finish. To be a part of our teams, athletes can come from anywhere on Long Island, Queens, and Brooklyn, and do not need to be a member of Sid Jacobson JCC or any other JCC.
