FINAL PREPS: Maccabi Games To Kick Off In Boca

BOCA RATON, FL ( — Expect a fair amount of attention to Boca Raton as the JCC Maccabi Games kick off in Boca in two weeks. The buildup is underway as close to 1000 Jewish teen athletes will call the area “home” for several days.

Aside from the predicable coverage by local TV reporters asking inane questions about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to teenagers here to play games, this is an important event to many in the community.

From the JCC:

The JCC Maccabi Games®, which will be held in Boca Raton for the first time in 14 years, are just over two weeks away. Over 750 Jewish teen athletes will come from communities across the United States as well as several other countries, including Mexico, Panama and Israel. In addition, over 200 South Florida athletes will represent the Levis JCC’s Mitchell Dobbin Maccabi team. The event is an enormous undertaking for the JCC Maccabi Games®, Adolph & Rose Levis Jewish Community Center in Boca Raton, and last minute preparations are being finalized in the next two weeks.

Some exciting events and activities happening include:

· This weekend, the South Florida delegation and their respective team coaches will be picking up their uniforms (Sunday, July 27 from 10:30am to 12:30pm on the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County’s Boca Raton campus).

· Opening Ceremonies will be held Sunday evening August 10 and include all delegations as they celebrate and kick off the JCC Maccabi Games®.

· During the week of the JCC Maccabi Games® (August 10-15, 2014), sports competitions will be held daily throughout South Florida as will entertainment-themed activities and a giving back component with local disadvantaged and special needs youth dubbed “JCC Community Cares.”
