The Maccabiah Games, a prominent international sports competition, often referred to as the “Jewish Olympics” is held every 4 years in Israel. It is the world’s largest Jewish gathering event and the second largest sporting event in the world – in terms of number of athletes competing – after the Olympics.
In July 2022 the Maccabiah hosted over 10,000 athletes representing 80 countries. Maccabi Canada sent 600 proud athletes and staff to the last Maccabiah games and was the second largest international delegation. The Games featured 3000 tournaments across 47 sports. The Maccabiah Games are committed to the values of fair play, mutual respect and the pursuit of excellence.
The Maccabiah offers a life changing experience for our participants as they connect to their Jewish roots, the Land of Israel, and other Jewish athletes from around the world.
