At Maccabi Canada we work to develop and promote a Jewish identity in our youth so they can become the future leaders of our community. We achieve our goal through the passion of sports.
The Maccabiah Games, a prominent international sports competition held every 4 years in Israel, is one of the top three gatherings of athletes in the world just behind the Olympics and the University Games. Maccabi Canada is creating 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. We bring young Jews to Israel to compete, and expose them to a rich Jewish culture, proud traditions and give them an Israel educational experience for a lifetime!
In addition, Maccabi Canada is actively engaging with Jewish day schools, camps and sport leagues, and is becoming synonymous with Jewish sports in Canada. Sports is a vehicle where children become disciplined, focused, determined, passionate, and becoming the best that they can be. Through these programs, our athletes are involved in giving back to the community, encouraging children to lead a healthy lifestyle through participation in sports.
Maccabi Canada is a member of Maccabi World Union, the largest Jewish organization in the world with over 450,000 registered members world-wide. In addition to being the organizing body of the Maccabiah, Maccabi World Union is committed to promoting Jewish education and Zionism across the world.
Maccabi Canada’s passion for sports, youth and Judaism is taking us on an exciting journey where we strive to become a leading Jewish organization and a national movement developing Jewish sports across Canada.
