About


Our mission is to enable every young Jew currently in 10th through 12th grades to visit Israel within the framework of an organized peer group educational program, for the purpose of strengthening, developing, and enriching his or her Jewish identity and identification with the Jewish people.

JCC Maccabi Israel is a project of two partners; JCC Association and Maccabi World Union. JCC Association is the continental umbrella organization for the Jewish Community Center Movement, which was started in 1854 and includes more than 340 JCCs, YM-YWHAs, and camp sites in the United States. Building on the 100 years of experience and the success of programs across North America, with JCC Maccabi Israel, we know you will have an unforgettable journey.


JCC Association and JMI are members of the Lapid coalition for High School Age Programs in Israel.
