Maccabi NSW has a history dating back as far as 1925 in NSW when the Sydney and Melbourne Jewish communities organised a cricket match between the two states. Since then Maccabi has existed in various formats – originally as JASA (the Jewish Amateur Sports Association) which eventually renamed itself as Maccabi NSW to become part of the world wide movement.
Today Maccabi NSW boasts numerous sporting clubs in Sydney with approximately 2,500-3,000 members.
Maccabi NSW assists clubs when needed financially or by other means, runs Carnivals for interstate visitors and holds various events each year, such as Award dinners and camps.
Maccabi’s commitment is to “connect our Jewish Community through Sport”.
