Jewish Community Center


The JCC Maccabi Games were recently held in Birmingham, Ala. (July 30-August 4) and Miami, Fla. (August 6-11). The St. Louis Jewish Community Center sent a delegation of 29 teenagers and six volunteer coaches to Birmingham and 21 teenagers and five volunteer coaches to Miami, with J staff member Phil Ruben serving as Delegation Head of both groups. The JCC Maccabi Games offer Jewish teens a unique social, cultural and life-shaping experience, bringing athletes from around the world together to serve an even greater purpose than athletic competition.
