Testimonials

Our children had the most amazing experience at the JCC Maccabi Games. They loved being with other Jewish teens from other states and countries. Thanks to the great WJCC staff for organizing such amazing events for our children to partake in!”

 “The Maccabi experience was by far the most phenomenal experience of my life. I loved being surrounded by other Jewish teens. I never wanted to leave and I cannot wait to go back next year.”
              -Team Westside Los Angeles Athlete

 “Of all of the Musical Theater workshops that I have taken part in, nothing has left me feeling as fulfilled as JCC Maccabi ArtsFest. I was surrounded by teens who love the same things that I love. The artists all shared one very important thing– our Judaism. It is not often that hundreds of Jewish teens gather together to celebrate the arts!”
