Visit Israel



Join us for an amazing opportunity to journey to Israel during one of the most colorful Jewish events in the world—the Maccabiah Games. We will have the chance to get to know Israel’s greatest sights as well as attend some of the competitions taking place in a variety of sports.

Whether spending time in Tel Aviv, Israel’s first Hebrew city, exploring the capital of Jerusalem, or discovering the terrain of the Galilee and Golan, being in Israel at this very special time adds a whole other dimension of enjoyment as Jewish athletes around the world gather here in a vibrant demonstration of Jewish peoplehood.
