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.
