The JCC Maccabi Games is an Olympic-style sporting competition held each
summer in North America and is the largest organized sports program for
Jewish teenagers in the world. The Maccabi movement began in 1895 when
the first all Jewish sports club was formed in Constantinople. The
first world Maccabiah Games was held in Israel in 1932.
Today, over 6,000 teens, ranging from 13 to 16 years of age participate
in the JCC Maccabi Games each summer. The Games are co-sponsored by the
Jewish Community Center Association of North America, Maccabi World
Union, Maccabi Canada, and Maccabi USA/Sports for Israel.
