About the JCC Maccabi Games®


As a JCC Maccabi Games athlete, teens will:

  • Participate in all Team Atlanta get-togethers & MJCCA sponsored events
  • Participate in Community Service (opportunities provided for each team)
  • Be able to attend scheduled practices
  • Follow all rules & regulations of the JCC Maccabi Games

The JCC Maccabi Games® are an Olympic-style sporting competition held each summer in North America and is the second 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 were held in Israel in 1932.

Over the course of the week, teens from around North America will compete in a variety of sports. Along the way, they’ll experience Rachmanus (compassion) during the competition and Tikkun Olam (Repair the World) during the community service.

Since 1982 the JCC Maccabi Games® have offered more than 140,000 Jewish teens a unique social, cultural, and life-shaping experience. The Games serve a larger purpose than athletic competition, promoting 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.

Atlanta proudly hosted the JCC Maccabi Games® in 2001 and 2019. Those Games showed that hosting the JCC Maccabi Games® brings the Metro Atlanta community together in an experience that transcends the week-long itinerary. Together, the Games will strengthen the entire community, empower the next generation of leaders and celebrate our values and traditions.

Today, more than 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.
