Rockland JCC to Host 2012 JCC Maccabi Games

WEST NYACK — Jewish athletes from all over the world will be in Rockland for three weeks of competitions during the summer of 2012.

The JCC Rockland in West Nyack has been chosen as one of three sites nationwide to host the 2012 JCC Maccabi Games.

"It's a wonderful opportunity to bring the whole community together in a united effort to see kids from all over the country take part in athletic competitions under the umbrella of the JCC Maccabi games," said Barry Kantrowitz, a past president of the JCC Rockland and co-chairman of the committee to bring the Games to the county.

He and members of the JCC have been lobbying for years to try to get organizers to bring the Games to Rockland, which has a large and diverse Jewish population.

"It's more than an athletic experience," said David Kirschtel, chief executive officer of the JCC Rockland. "It's a phenomenal community-building experience."

The JCC Maccabi Games is an Olympic-style sporting competition held each August in North America. It is the largest organized sports program for Jewish teenagers in the world.

Every year, more than 6,000 Jewish teens between ages of 12 and 16 participate in such competitions as baseball, basketball, swimming, soccer and inline hockey.
