Hang Time

The JCC Maccabi Games® is an incredible event that brings thousands of Jewish teenagers together. Our vision for the Games is to create a meaningful Jewish experience for Jewish athletes and to present as many opportunities as possible for athletes to interact with each other. Hang Time is a Jewish space and place of fun, informal activities for athletes to enjoy and connect with during their non-competition time at the Games. Staffed by Israeli counselors (Shlichim) and volunteers from the Hang Time host communities committee, Hang Time offers opportunities to learn about Israel, as well as other segments of Jewish life and history.
