41st Annual Hebraica Maccabi Games

Our Maccabi Games are entering another milestone…This year, we will be celebrating the 41st anniversary of our spectacular Games here in Miami.

From its beginnings with 200 athletes who were now calling America their home, the Games have morphed 10 times in numbers to become the largest annual Jewish athletic event of its kind in the United States.

Who would have thought back then that these Games would have continued from generation to generation–from its earliest participants planting the seeds for their children to nurture and grow…and now passing that legacy along for their children’s children to inherit.

For this special anniversary, we turn to you to lend your support as a 41 Annual Maccabi Games sponsor.
