AFTER months of planning and anticipation, the 2020 Maccabi Junior Carnival has begun!

Perth’s Jewish community warmly welcomed the 170 boys and girls representing Maccabi NSW, VIC, QLD and WA – and their team managers and youth leaders – at a buzzing opening ceremony on January 21 at the Carmel School hall.

Music, mingling and motivational speeches got everyone in the mood for a memorable week of friendly sporting competitions, themed parties and plenty of fun activities from indoor rock climbing to laser tag.

Always a highlight on Maccabi Australia’s junior sporting calendar, the carnival will conclude on January 27.
