Since 1982 the JCC Maccabi Games ® have been offering over 140,000 Jewish teens a unique social, cultural, and life shaping experience. The Games serve a larger purpose than athletic competition, they promote 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 has proudly hosted JCC Maccabi before in 2001. We learned that hosting JCC Maccabi brings our community together in an experience that transcends the Games and ArtsFest. Together, we’ll strengthen our entire Jewish community, empower our next generation of leaders and celebrate our values and traditions.
