St. Louis JCC Maccabi Games® & ArtsFest® Delegation
2020 JCC Maccabi Games & ArtsFest
San Diego, CA
JCC MACCABI GAMES® (13-16 year olds):
The JCC Maccabi Games offer Jewish teens a unique social, cultural and life-shaping experience. The Games bring athletes from around the world together and serve a larger purpose than athletic competition. They promote Rachmanus (compassion), Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World), and Amiut Yehudit (Jewish Peoplehood). These sentiments are shared during the week through unique experiences. The energy and excitement make the Games an unforgettable experience for everyone – whether athlete, volunteer, coach or host. St. Louis has participated in the Games since 1984, taking athletes to cities throughout the United States and Israel, and hosted in 1993, 1996, 2003 and 2016.
JCC MACCABI ARTSFEST® (13-17 year olds): JCC Maccabi ArtsFest is a weeklong arts experience for creative Jewish teens ages 13-17, featuring workshops in a variety of specialties with some of the leading artists in each field and incorporating community service, social activities, and themes of Jewish heritage, community, and Israel. ArtsFest offers artists the opportunity to partake in intimate master classes during the day and party at the largest Jewish teen block party at night. The program culminates in an exciting final showcase, where each specialty will have the opportunity to share their creations with fellow ArtsFest and Games participants and invited guests.
