2017 JCC MACCABI GAMES® and ARTSFEST®
IN HONOR OF HERSCHEL ROSENTHAL
August 6-11, 2017
The Alper JCC is excited to host for the second time, the first being in 2001. The JCC Maccabi Games® and ArtsFest® are more than a sports competition and arts workshops. They are an experiential program encompassing the entire community. From home hospitality to volunteering events, all of the community will have a role in this outreach effort for Jewish teens.
The JCC Maccabi Games® are a week-long Olympic-style sports competition that began in 1982. Each year, three communities host the Games, with one also hosting JCC Maccabi ArtsFest®, which was held for the first time in 2006. Attracting approximately 3,000 teens from around the globe, these events give your teens a chance to meet other Jewish youth while participating in sports they love, or in an intense immersion in their art.
