Maccabi NSW has a long 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 J.A.S.A (the Jewish Amateur Sports Association) which eventually renamed itself as Maccabi NSW to become part of the world wide movement.
Maccabi NSW boasts 20 organised sporting clubs in Sydney, the largest member based group in the Jewish community, and a head office at White City with a CEO, Youth Officer and other staff. Membership varies from year to year with approximately 2,500-3,000 members each year.
assists clubs when needed financially or by other means, runs Carnivals for interstate visitors every 4 years and also holds various events each year such as Award Dinners & Mega Camps each school holiday.
Our ongoing commitment is to "connect our Jewish Community through Sport".
