JCC Maccabi Games

It’s time to join the team! Calling all Jewish teens to participate in the experience of a lifetime!!

What is Maccabi?

JCC Maccabi Games

Each summer, thousands of Jewish teens gather for a fun-filled week of athletic, social, and cultural events at the JCC Maccabi Games and Artsfest.  Since 1982, over 100,000 teens have participated in what is deemed the largest annual Jewish teen event.

The Maccabi Games is an Olympics for Jewish teens, but the event serves a much larger purpose than just being an athletic competition, as it promotes community involvement, teamwork, and pride in being Jewish. Athletes compete in one of many potential sports including baseball, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, boys and girls lacrosse, ice hockey, volleyball, flag football, ultimate Frisbee, bowling, track and field, softball, dance, swimming, table tennis, and tennis.

In addition, there are social events and opportunities to help others during the week-long experience, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Participating in the JCC Maccabi Games and Artsfest is an opportunity to not only represent Tucson, but to meet teens from all over the country and world.

A note from our awesome member, Vicki Velasco: "I started my journey at the Tucson JCC last May. I was 62, weighed almost 300 pounds and knew I had to do something to get healthy. I started small – mostly at the pool with my granddaughter! Last September I decided to work with a trainer, checked out the information sheets for three trainers and was fortunate to start working with Rhina Gerhauser.

"Rhina talked with me about my goals and helped me get going with twice-weekly 30 minute workouts. My second small step! I started feeling better, but was still only working out when I saw Rhina. In May of this year I went to the doctor and had a bit of a “wake-up call.” I was told if I didn’t make some changes, my only recourse for losing weight would be weight-loss surgery.

"The 100 Day Challenge at the JCC started the next week and I was all-in! I asked Rhina to measure me at the beginning and I committed to getting into the J each work day. Rhina measured me at the end of the challenge and I had lost 12.5”!

"Because I was coming regularly to the J, I started getting to know people and was amazed at the community I was discovering. So many people were encouraging and commented on my progress. I also started taking classes in addition to doing cardio and personal training. While I have a long journey ahead to reach my health and weight loss goals, I am well on my way, thanks to being at the J!

"I am excited to explore new opportunities like cooking and dance classes and the film festival as part of the new Passport program. Joining the JCC was just a beginning – being a part of the JCC community keeps me going!"
