JCC Maccabi Games (ages 12-16)
Each summer we send a delegation of Jewish teens ages 12-16 from Silicon Valley to participate at this international athletic and artistic competition for Jewish teens. In addition to competing in Olympic-style competitions against teams from around the U.S. and other countries, all teens also take part in a day of Caring & Sharing, experience home hospitality, and visit major tourist sites. The games are in a different city in North America each summer.
Stay tuned for details about dates, location, and fees for summer 2018. For more information, contact Josh Glincher at firstname.lastname@example.org or 408.357.7447.
