Maccabi Montreal is going to the JCC Maccabi Games!

Let the countdown begin! MACCABI 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. 

Congratulations to our 2022 Maccabi athletes for bringing home Gold Medals in Boys 14U 3×3 Basketball, Silver in Boys 14U Soccer, and Bronze in Hockey. Maccabi Montreal is already looking forward to 2023!
