2015 JCC MACCABI GAMES LEADERSHIP
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.
