OPENING NOVEMBER 2020
Yosef Yekutieli, a 15-year-old Russian-born immigrant to Palestine was so inspired by the Olympic Games in Stockholm that he embarked on a quest to create a similar event for Jewish athletes. After years of lobbying, Tel Aviv played host to the first Jewish Games in 1932.
90 years on, from the 12th to the 26th of July 2022, the Australian Maccabiah Team will continue that tradition and join thousands of athletes from over 80 countries to compete in the 21st Maccabiah Games in Israel.
Pre-Camp for the Australian Team will take place in Israel from the 8th to the 12th of July 2022.
