Looking for young Jewish athletes


The JCC of Greater Boston is sending a delegation of athletes to this summer’s JCC Maccabi Games in Detroit (Bloomfield), Michigan. 

The games will take place from July 28 to Aug. 2, and athletes between the ages of 12 and 16 years are eligible to compete in the following sports: baseball, basketball, ice hockey, girls’ volleyball, golf, soccer, table tennis, tennis, star reporter, swimming and dance.

This is a fabulous opportunity as 1,800 Jewish teens from all around the world converge for this year’s games. Join Jewish teens from North and South America, Israel, Europe and beyond for a chance to make new friends, compete in exciting sports and have the time of your life!

Activities include Olympic-style sports competitions, including opening and closing ceremonies; JCC Cares community service projects; hangtime programming with Israeli schlichim; and evening social events.

Rhode Islanders are invited to join the group. Participants must be between the ages of 12 and 16 as of July 31, 2024.
