2020 JCC Maccabi Events:

With deep regret, JCC Association of North America has made the painful and difficult decision to cancel the 2020 JCC Maccabi Games®, JCC Maccabi ArtsFest®, and JCC Maccabi Access, originally scheduled for August 2-7, in San Diego, California, and for August 9-14, at Pace University in Westchester County, New York.

Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic, a circumstance beyond our control, made this decision necessary. Although it may seem that August is many months away, the state-mandated restrictions currently prohibiting gatherings and the need for JCCs to support their own communities during this time were factors in our decision, as was the need to balance the interests of all those involved in the planning process. Summer remains a vital period of activity for JCCs, and the cancellation of this year’s JCC Maccabi® events has no bearing on the summer camp season.

We are heartbroken, of course, but this pandemic is compelling all of us to deal with forces beyond our control. We are thinking of each one of you who was anticipating a terrific JCC Maccabi® experience, and we look forward to creating the best-ever JCC Maccabi® program in 2021. In the meantime, stay safe, healthy, and strong.
