JCC Maccabi Games

The JCC Maccabi Games® have been offering a life-and personality-shaping experience to Jewish teenagers since 1982.  At this Jewish Olympic style event, each athlete has the chance to participate in one of 14 sports and events spanning the week-long experience, creating memories that will last a lifetime. Beyond athletic competition, the Games also promote community involvement, teamwork, and pride in being Jewish.  This is the largest Jewish teen event in the world – each summer over thousands of Jewish teens participate- and since its inception, over 100,000 teens have benefited from the JCC Maccabi Games.  The energy and excitement make it a unique and unforgettable experience for every participant, from athletes to volunteers, from coaches to host families.
The JCC Maccabi Games are open to Jewish Teens ages 13-16 who are JCC members. Each year Baltimore sends over a hundred athletes to the various host cities for competition. We compete in sports including Soccer, Basketball, Volleyball, Bowling, Baseball, Table Tennis, Tennis, Swimming, Softball, Dance and Track & Field.
