Y Montreal at the JCC Maccabi Games

Let the countdown begin! Y MONTREAL will be going to JCC Maccabi® Games this summer in Israel and Fort Lauderdale. We want you on the team!

Reach out today for more information maccabi@ymywha.com!

The JCC Maccabi Games convene over 3000 talented teenagers (ages 12-17) from across the USA, Canada, Mexico, Israel and the UK. While the competition is the focus of the event, it’s the off-field events and camaraderie, that truly make this a must have experience for any elite Jewish athlete. Learn more HERE. 

Did you know that in 2002 the Sylvan Adams YM-YWHA hosted the JCC Maccabi games? Now that we are once again participating in this Olympic-style event, our hope is that the Montreal Delegation continues to grow and that we may even once again host the games in Montreal.
