JCC Maccabi Games are an Olympic-style sporting competition held each summer. Since their inception in 1982, the JCC Maccabi Games has grown from a small pilot project in one host community to an Olympic-style sporting competition held each summer in multiple sites. The combined Games are the largest organized sports program for Jewish teenagers in the world. Today, close to 5000 teens participate in the JCC Maccabi Games each summer.
