Israel Connect

Maccabi USA’s Israel Connect program is a 6-day immersive journey focused on building connection to one’s own Jewish Identity, the American Jewish community, Israel, and global Diaspora Jewry. It has become the cornerstone of the US delegation’s 3-week Maccabiah experience. Thank you to our sponsors and supporters for helping make this possible, including: the JNF-USA Boruchin Center, the Seed the Dream Foundation, the Paul Singer Family Foundation, the Jewish Education Project/RootOne, and Maccabi World Union/Kfar Maccabiah.
