Maccabi Montreal is going to the JCC Maccabi Games!

Join 3,000 Jewish teen athletes from around the globe at the world’s largest Jewish youth sporting event. The JCC Maccabi Games offers Olympic-style sports competitions, including opening and closing ceremonies; travel; community service; social and cultural events; and opportunities to make friends and memories to last a lifetime. Experience the magic of JCC Maccabi. Find out how you can join a delegation and represent your community in Israel, Detroit, or Houston this summer.

Did you know that in 2002 the Sylvan Adams YM-YWHA hosted the JCC Maccabi games? Now that we are once again participating in this Olympic-style event, our hope is that the Montreal Delegation continues to grow and that we may even once again host the games in Montreal.
