The JCC Maccabi Games® are the largest gathering of Jewish teens in the world. Since the 1982 inaugural Games, the JCC Maccabi Games® have made a vital contribution to the athletic, social, and cultural growth of Jewish teens at home and abroad.

JCC Austin is the home of Team Austin, the Austin delegation to the JCC Maccabi Games®. Every summer, Team Austin athletes travel to the host cities of the JCC Maccabi Games® around the country and even to Israel to participate in an Olympic-style sports competition and enjoy all that the Maccabi experience has to offer, including parties, dances and other social activities.


JCC Maccabi ArtsFest is a weeklong summer arts experience for creative Jewish teens ages 13-17, featuring workshops in a variety of specialties with some of the leading artists in each field and incorporating community service, social activities, and themes of Jewish heritage, community, and Israel. The JCC Maccabi ArtsFest combined with the JCC Maccabi Games create one joint JCC Maccabi Experience, which gives our participants the opportunity to be a part of a larger Jewish teen community and allows us to offer them so much more.

Teens ages 13 -17, as of July 31, 2020 are eligible to participate in Maccabi Artsfest.
