Maccabi Australia is thrilled to announce that the world’s leading commercial property services firm, CBRE has partnered with the organisation and its 90th Anniversary celebrations. Specifically, CBRE is the major sponsor of the Sporting Challenges taking place on October 11 and October 18 in Melbourne and Sydney respectively.

CBRE, as the world’s leading commercial property services firm, is dedicated to delivering end to end solutions for clients across the property spectrum. The company has more than 70,000 employees and serves real estate owners, investors and occupiers through more than 400 offices, including 17 in Australia. The depth and breadth of CBRE’s platform provides real advantage for clients across a full suite of property services, including sales and leasing, valuations, property management and advisory services.

Event organiser Paul Platus has worked tirelessly to create an event that pays respect to the rich history of Maccabi, whilst looking to reinspire and reinvigorate Maccabi rivalries – State vs State; Club vs. Club. Paul noted that “CBRE’s sponsorship is reflective of the importance of Maccabi in the Australian Jewish community, and we could not be more delighted to have an organisation of this caliber partnering us.”

In 1925 a group of Jewish athletes from Victoria boarded a train at Flinders Station bound for Sydney to compete in the first Jewish sporting competition between the two states. This competition, 90 years ago, marked the birth of Maccabi sporting carnivals which is being celebrated with a challenge across netball, basketball and football between New South Wales and Victoria

The event schedule will be available soon at, and the community is encouraged to turn up and support the teams competing. If you would like to volunteer for the event, whether at the games or the social event on the Saturday evening, please email Ellana Aarons on
