Connecting our Jewish community through sport and wellbeing
We represents Jewish sportsmen and women around the world
Maccabi Australia is a Zionist sports organisation and has focused on strengthening its links with Israel and the Australian Jewish community since the 1920’s. It is part of Maccabi World Union (MWU) who represent more than 500,000 members in over 80 countries participating in just about every sporting code.
Maccabi across the world has established a phenomenal track record of using organised sports as a passport to lifelong Jewish involvement.
Maccabi Australia was formed with the purpose of developing and coordinating grassroots activities, encouraging participation, and pursuing health improvement in the community.
The Maccabi organisation in Australia has a proud history of developing Jewish sport and has been sending a team to the Maccabiah since 1950 as well as playing a significant role in developing sport locally through a national club structure.
There is a Maccabi club for everyone, no matter what state you live in. To see the specific Maccabi clubs in each state, select a Maccabi state site below.
We have been operating in Australia for over 90 years and have successfully provided sport programs to many thousands of people over this time. To ensure we remain relevant and provide you our members with more value and benefit we have launched the Maccabi Life program which is full of benefits that are absolutely FREE to all Maccabi and Maccabi Life members.
