JCC Maccabi Games in Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Week of Aug 9, 2015
Registration is coming soon.
The first North American JCC Maccabi Games were held in 1982 in Memphis with 300 athletes participating. Since then, the JCC Maccabi Games® have grown from a small pilot project in one host community to a world-class sporting competition held each summer in multiple sites throughout North America. In 2011, the JCC Maccabi Games were held for the first time in Israel. The year 2012 marks the 30th anniversary of the JCC Maccabi Games program.
The Games are the largest organized sports program for Jewish teenagers in the world. Each summer, over 5,000 Jewish teens participate in the program, with over 100,000 teens having benefited from the JCC Maccabi Games® since 1982. The energy and excitement that comes from bringing together both the local and global Jewish communities make it a unique and unforgettable experience for every participant.
While many think of the JCC Maccabi Games program as the “Jewish teen Olympics,” it also serves a purpose much greater than just an athletic competition. The Games promote community involvement, teamwork, and Jewish pride. Regardless of who gets awarded medals, each athlete leaves with positive memories, life lessons, and lasting friendships.
In August 2012, Rockland will join the distinguished list of communities that have undertaken the grand endeavor of hosting the JCC Maccabi Games. The effort has required years of preparation, support, and community involvement. JCC Rockland will add to the momentousness of the event by working with local leaders to stage the Opening Ceremonies at the Field House at Rockland Community College.
The JCC Maccabi Games is a program of the Jewish Community Center Association of North America, with support from Maccabi World Union, Maccabi Canada, and Maccabi USA/Sports for Israel.
