40th Annual Maccabi Games

Dear Maccabi Games Participants:

Our Maccabi Games are entering another milestone…This year, we will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of our spectacular Games here in Miami.

From its beginnings with 200 athletes who were now calling America their home, the Games have morphed 10 times in numbers to become the largest annual Jewish athletic event of its kind in the United States.

Who would have thought back then that these Games would have continued from generation to generation–from its earliest participants planting the seeds for their children to nurture and grow…and now passing that legacy along for their children’s children to inherit.

For this special anniversary, we turn to you to lend your support as a 40 Annual Maccabi Games sponsor.



Hebraica Co-Chairs: Lia Brod • Mindy Hardoon

Maccabi Games Co-Chairs: Helen Beda • David Guenoun • Rully Moskovitz

Honorary Chairs: Isail Wagenberg • Salo Wagenberg


This year to celebrate the 40th anniversary, we are creating a commemorative ad journal. 

Be part of the history of the Maccabi Games.


For four decades, we have had the opportunity to bring our community together to share in an intergenerational experience. 

The MARJCC Hebraica Maccabi Games is an Olympic-style sporting competition. This week-long athletic event historically features over 700 competitive games in 13 different sports, including basketball, swimming, track and field, golf, tennis, soccer, volleyball, flag football, chess, dominos, and more.  

Historically, the Games have attracted approximately 2200 registered athletes and up to 4,000 daily spectators. The games are divided into eight teams named after participants countries of origin.  

To attain our goals, we request you review our sponsorship opportunities and become one of our financial supporters. Your generosity supports an important community event serving our South Florida community.

Earlier today, there was a shooting at the Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community Center with one fatality. Miami-Dade Police have confirmed it is being investigated as a domestic issue. The suspected gunman has been arrested, and police have indicated there is no known threat to the Jewish community.

Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to the victim’s family.

Thankfully, years of drills and numerous safety protocols ensured the safety of our members, staff, and community.

The Michael-Ann Russell JCC is grateful to the Miami-Dade Police Department and all first responders who responded so quickly.

The MARJCC will resume normal operations tomorrow, April 4, 2022. However, as previously communicated, there are no group exercise classes or adult enrichment classes until 3:30 p.m. due to a previously scheduled conference.

We would want to remind everyone that each of us must adhere to the established protocols to minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19.  We love seeing you at the J, but please stay home and monitor symptoms for 14 days:

  • if you are experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19, or
  • if you have come into direct contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or
  • if anyone in your household is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or
  • if anyone in your household has come into direct contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19

Thank you in advance for your support.
