Connecting our Jewish community through sport and wellbeing


The largest Maccabiah team which includes round 430 athletes,  85 coaches and managers, 26 VIP Supporters and 30 Masters Supporters are about to leave to compete in the 21st Games commencing on the 12th July.

The team is well prepared and  we are grateful to the many sponsors and donors who have contributed to the games budget of around $8 million. Maccabi Australia’s goal is to ensure that no athlete who wishes to attend the games is left behind and we are proud to say this goal has been achieved for these games.

You will be able to keep up to date with all the games results and news through our dedicated social channels.

We wish the team well and look forward to the successes both on and off the sports field.

Join Maccabi LIFE today

Maccabi LIFE is a bold community initiative which was created in 2019 and developed to create sustainable health change in the Australian Jewish community by promoting the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.

The goal is to promote health and well-being options outside of our Sport programs to the full range of age demographics through 3 distinct pillars – Physical Activity, Healthy Eating and Mental Wellbeing. This will be achieved through education sessions, online events, and unstructured activity.

Maccabi LIFE will partner with leading health and wellness professionals to create a wide range of events and activities that are relevant and evolve with the ever-changing health needs of our community.

Maccabi is a world wide organisation.

We represent Jewish sportsmen and women around the world

We are the largest Jewish grass-roots organisation in Australia, boasting a 90-year heritage, 35,000 supporters and more than 6,000 members ranging in age from 5 to 85 years across over 50 clubs. Every week participating in a Maccabi team provides an opportunity for Jewish children to connect and form lifelong friendships. Our event calendar includes an annual Junior Sports Carnival, participation in the Maccabiah Games in Israel, interstate sport challenges and Maccabi regional events.
