About the JCC Maccabi Experience

The JCC Maccabi Games®—five days that can change the lives of Jewish teens (13 to 16 years old)—have been doing just that for more than 30 years. During the JCC Maccabi Games®, teens from communities around the globe are immersed in a sports and recreation program imbued with Jewish values and experiences. The goal of the JCC Maccabi Games® is to contribute to the maintenance and enrichment of Jewish identity in youth and to the development of democratic values and leadership through healthy competition and sportsmanship. The JCC Maccabi Games®, in partnership with its sister program JCC Maccabi ArtsFest®, is the largest annual gathering of Jewish teens in the world and has now influenced over 130,000 Jewish youth in North America and around the world.

JCC Maccabi ArtsFest® is a weeklong summer arts experience for creative Jewish teens (13 to 17 years old) that takes place alongside JCC Maccabi Games®. Like the Games, ArtsFest incorporates community service through our JCC Cares program, social activities, community, and Israel engagement. Featuring workshops in a variety of creative specialties with some of the leading artists in each field, JCC Maccabi ArtsFest® inspires Jewish teens through a dynamic combination of workshops, performances, exhibitions, and fun. ArtsFest teens spend their days learning from some of the most highly regarded artists in their fields, working alongside other teens who share their artistic spirit, and spend their nights socializing at the largest Jewish teen block party with thousands of other Jewish teens from all over the world from both JCC Maccabi ArtsFest® and the JCC Maccabi Games®.
