JCC Athletes in Maccabi Games
For an entire week this summer, 57 young athletes of the Sid Jacobson JCC got a chance to compete with young Jewish athletes from North America and five other countries in the 2004 Maccabi Games. Participants shared in the fun of competing, the joy of meeting their peers and the pride of being part of a world-famous Olympic-style event filled with Jewish content and values. It is a life-and personality-shaping experience that the JCC Maccabi Games have been offering to Jewish teenagers since 1982. At this Jewish mini-Olympiad, each athlete has the chance to participate in one of 13 sporting events.
