The Maccabi Dream

The Maccabiah Games, a prominent international sports competition held every four years in Israel, is one of the top three gatherings of athletes in the world. Over 7000 athletes proudly represent over 55 countries and compete for Gold, Silver and Bronze medals.

The games are broadcasted to a world-wide audience, including the spectacular opening ceremonies attended by 50,000 enthusiastic spectators cheering for their countries and athletes.

At Maccabi Canada we work to create the "Maccabi Dream" by which every Jewish child will aspire to become an athlete and lead a healthy lifestyle so they can participate in the games, thus the games will become one step on the path of their Jewish journey. Our main goal is to bring young Canadian Jews to Israel to compete in the games and expose them to a rich Jewish culture, proud traditions and give them an Israel educational experience for a lifetime!

Our mission is promoting Jewish identity and cultivating future leadership and support for Israel through the passion of sport.

Past Maccabiah athletes include Olympic champions; Mark Spitz, Kerri Strug, Lenny Krayzelburg, Mitch Gaylord and very recently, Jason Lezak.

In addition, Fred Oberlander, international wrestling champion and founder of Maccabi Canada.

You too can help realize the Maccabi Dream by partnering with Maccabi Canada.
