Maccabi Games

Director: Leora Azriel, 402-334-6404,

The JCC Macacbi Games & ArtsFest is a week-long international, multi-sport, athletic and cultural event involving thousands of Jewish teens. Each year, athletes and artists share in the FUN of competing, the JOY of meeting other teens, and the PRIDE of being a part of a world-famous Olympic Style event filled with Jewish content and values. It is a life and personality shaping experience that the JCC Maccabi Games have been offering to Jewish teens since 1982.

On August 4, our group of teen athletes headed off to Orange County, California for the JCC Maccabi Games®. Members of Team Omaha included: Spencer Arnold Zach Belgrade, Alex Belgrade, Cooper Clark, Jackson Clark, Grant Goldstein, Adam Folsom, Will McGauvran, Jared Murray, Aaron Noddle, Josh Polack, Brett Robinson, Adam Silverman, Jake Spivack and Israel Delegation participants Osher Kohen and Dennis Nemirorski. Team Omaha members competed in Basketball, Soccer, Baseball, Tennis and ArtsFest competitions. Team Omaha also enjoyed several fun and cultural activities and met new friends from all over the United States, and from across the world! It was a great experience full of memories that will last a lifetime. Way to go Team Omaha, we're proud of you!
