The Levite Jewish Community Center (LJCC) will play host to the 2017 JCC Maccabi Games, July 30-August 4. This will mark the first time that the JCC Maccabi Games have been hosted in the state of Alabama.
There are many ways to be involved:
Be an Athlete. Be a Coach. Be a Host Family. Be a Volunteer. Be a Sponsor.
Since 1982 the JCC Maccabi Games ® have been offering over 100,000 Jewish teens a unique social, cultural, and life shaping experience. The Games serve a larger purpose than athletic competition, they promote community involvement, teamwork, and pride in being Jewish. The energy and excitement make the Games an unforgettable experience for every participant, from athlete to volunteer, from coaches to host families.
The JCC Maccabi Games® will begin on Sunday, July 30 with our Opening Ceremonies and Parade of Athletes. Over the course of the week, athletes from around the world will compete in a variety of sports. Along the way, they’ll experience Rachmanus (compassion) during the competition, Tikkun Olam (Repair the World) during the community service.
