JCC Maccabi Games 2015
Thank you for supporting the 2015 Milwaukee JCC Maccabi Games
The JCC Maccabi Games® is the largest Jewish youth event in the world. From August 2-7, 2015, our community welcomed nearly 1,000 visiting Jewish teens from across the globe and involved all of Greater Milwaukee, including host families, volunteers and local teen athletes.
Welcome to Milwaukee!
A five day athletic competition and community event, the JCC Maccabi Games opened at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Sunday, August 2nd. Over the course of the week, athletes from around the world competed in sports ranging from soccer to tennis to swimming and more. Along the way, they experienced Rachmanus (compassion) during the competition, Tikkun Olam (Repair the World) during the community action projects known as “JCC Cares”, and Amiut Yehudit (Jewish Peoplehood) during unique experiences that strengthen their connection to each other, their communities, and Israel.
Milwaukee last proudly hosted the Games in 1997 – but the opportunity to create a lasting community experience has never been greater. Together, we built an experience that transcended the Games – one that strengthened our entire Jewish community, empowered our next generation of leaders, and celebrated our values and traditions.
Whether an athlete, a host, a volunteer, or a donor – we thank you for GETTING IN THE GAMES!
