JCC Maccabi Games & Mid-Atlantic Junior Maccabi Games

Katz JCC Mid-Atlantic Junior Maccabi GamesThe JCC Maccabi Games are the largest annual gathering of Jewish teens ages 13-16 from around the world! This Olympic style sports competition is held each summer and offers teens the chance to be a part of an incredible athletic, social and cultural experience. The Katz JCC’s South Jersey delegation travels to compete across the county with over 5,000 teens worldwide. In addition, the Mid-Atlantic Junior Maccabi Games is a 1 day sports competition for Jewish athletes ages 10-12. Athletes from JCCs across the Mid-Atlantic region compete each spring, and this is a great way for kids to experience the JCC Maccabi Games on a smaller scale prior to participating in the “big games.” Learn more about the JCC Maccabi Games & Mid-Atlantic Junior Maccabi Games!
