2015 Dallas Maccabi Games® Kickoff Event


Dallas: home of the 2015 JCC Maccabi Games®

The JCC Maccabi Games® are an Olympic-style sporting competition held each summer in North America and the second largest organized sports program for Jewish teens in the world. Over 1200 Jewish athletes from all over the world, ages thirteen to sixteen, will descend upon Dallas in August of 2015 to participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Whether an Athlete, a Host Family, a Volunteer, or a Sponsor there is a place for you.

Game On Y’all!

Since 1982 the JCC Maccabi Games® have been offering over 100,000 Jewish teens a unique social, cultural, and life shaping experience. The Games serve a larger purpose than athletic competition, they promote community involvement, teamwork, and pride in being Jewish. The energy and excitement make the Games an unforgettable experience for every participant, from athlete to volunteer, from coaches to host families.

The JCC Maccabi Games® will begin on Sunday, August 2nd with our Opening Ceremonies and Parade of Athletes. Over the course of the week, athletes from around the world will compete in a variety of sports. Along the way, they’ll experience Rachmanus (compassion) during the competition, Tikkun Olam (Repair the World) during the community service project known as “JCC Cares”, and Amiut Yehudit (Jewish Peoplehood) during unique experiences that strengthen their connection to each other, their communities, and Israel.

Together we’ll build an experience that transcends the Games, strengthens our entire community, empowers our next generation of leaders and celebrates our values and traditions.
