Join Maccabi LIFE today

Maccabi LIFE is a bold community initiative which was created in 2019 and developed to create sustainable health change in the Australian Jewish community by promoting the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.

The goal is to promote health and well-being options outside of our Sport programs to the full range of age demographics through 3 distinct pillars – Physical Activity, Healthy Eating and Mental Wellbeing. This will be achieved through education sessions, online events, and unstructured activity.

Maccabi LIFE will partner with leading health and wellness professionals to create a wide range of events and activities that are relevant and evolve with the ever-changing health needs of our community.

Maccabi is a world wide organisation.
