21st Maccabiah
Israel, July 12-26, 2022



Maccabi USA builds Jewish pride through sports and promotes support for Israel, Zionism, and Jewish continuity through athletic, educational, and cultural experiences for participants of all ages.

Stuart Weitzman Scholarship Fund

Stuart Weitzman, three-time Maccabi USA Table Tennis alum and founder of the eponymous shoe company, has challenged us to a match. Not at table tennis, but to endow scholarships for athletes in financial need. If we raise $3 million by June 2022, Stuart will match us with $5 million!

New Partnership
with JNF-USA

Maccabi USA has announced a new partnership with Jewish National Fund USA’s (JNF-USA) Boruchin Center to enhance the Israel Connect experience for the 2022 Maccabiah. Working together, Maccabi USA will bring its under-18 athletes to JNF-USA supported sites in Israel and expose them to additional opportunities to connect with the Jewish land and people.

the Maccabi Media Program

The inaugural Maccabi Media Program will debut at the 21st Maccabiah and feature 14 highly skilled students and aspiring sports media professionals. These young professionals will perform various broadcasting and video production roles and play a pivotal role in enhancing coverage of the Maccabiah back home. Chaired by Marc Zumoff, the recently retired voice of the Philadelphia 76ers, this program will offer first-rate mentorship to young reporters from top journalists in the field.


Maccabi USA envisions a world where sports serve as a galvanizing force in strengthening Jewish pride, connection, and community.

My dream of competing as a member of Maccabi USA came true this past summer at the 14th Pan American Maccabi Games. While my original talent was as a gymnast, my most recent talent is as a triathlete. As I was surfing the web, I stumbled upon a Maccabi USA Facebook ad seeking Jewish triathletes. The post seemed too good to be true, so I had to find out more. After solidifying that Maccabi USA was in fact fielding a triathlon team, I applied, was appointed to the team, and about 6 months later was boarding a flight to Mexico City to compete as a member of Team Maccabi USA!
