Maccabi Games

Maccabi Games is an Olympic-style competition for Jewish teens ages 13–16

All athletes must be Jewish, which is defined as follows: One of the athlete’s parents is Jewish and the athlete is being raised Jewish or is a Jew by choice and is being raised Jewish. In the spirit of the Games, if the parent or child does not believe that they are Jewish on a year-round basis, then the child should not participate in JCC Maccabi. In the athlete online registration, there is a declaration that contains the eligibility requirements; both the athlete and his/her parent(s) must sign this declaration.

Over the last few years, our JCC has been honored to bring approximately 75 teens to participate in the JCC Maccabi experience. Team Oregon has had tremendous success in both the Games and ArtsFest.

If you or someone you know is interested in joining our delegation please contact Saul Korin at

Thank you all those that help make the JCC Maccabi experience a reality for our area youth.
“During Opening Ceremonies, when I saw how many Jewish people came out to be a part of JCC Maccabi®, I felt extremely proud of my Jewish heritage.”
