Education & Leadership

Two key objectives for Maccabi SA are to develop Jewish youth in mind, body and spirit, as well as instil our values and principles of teamwork, sportsmanship, respect, compassion, self-discipline and good citizenship.

An important focus for Maccabi SA in 2016 is facilitating informal education and leadership opportunities in the sports industry for post matric students which will serve to develop our future leaders and teach our values. We are currently exploring three exciting projects for South African students to partake in:

  1. Maccabi World Union in Israel, the international headquarters of the Maccabi movement, offers sports related courses from 4-8 months duration.
  2. A gap year in Israel via the Israel Centre including sporting activities.
  3. An internship at a local sports marketing/events agency.

We will provide more details in due course, including information on criteria and applications.
