Maccabi Alumni Happy Hour

Keep your ‘spirits’ high and raise a toast with your Maccabi USA mishpacha (family) for a virtual happy hour. 


As we experience the absence of sports (from Little League to the Major Leagues) and social connection at all levels in our daily lives, Maccabi USA is going virtual to help fill that void.

 We are hosting workouts, sport-specific skill-building sessions, interviews with well-known Jewish athletes, Esports competitions, online social gatherings, and Jewish ritual moments, all as part of Maccabi USA @ Home. This virtual community seeks to engage Maccabi USA alumni and the broader Jewish American sports community – and we want to be tailor-made to your needs so be in touch with your ideas!

Please join us and lend your voice as we bring the Maccabi community home.
