Who are Maccabi GB?
Maccabi GB is a limited liability company registered in England and Wales under company number 4759599. We are today one of the country's largest and most innovative Jewish Charities registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales with number 1098206. We aim to deliver a broad range of Sporting, Educational and Social events for the whole of the Jewish community with the ethos of Jewish continuity and the centrality of Israel as our primary motivation and we currently run over 200 programmes a year.
We have been running our programme in this country for over 70 years and as a charity this has been achieved only as a result of the support of a large group of dedicated volunteers and financial support from both the community and government funding.
We act as an umbrella organisation for over 30 different sports and support thousands of Jewish adults and young people, including those with special needs, who take advantage of our extensive programmes every year.
The Maccabi GB Challenge Programme, allows young people with special needs the opportunity to take an active part in Maccabi events, some of which are specially planned for them including tours to Israel.
As well as our comprehensive sports programmes we offer an extensive range of informal education projects and social events for all age groups. We also organise a catalogue of international events and send groups and teams to Israel and many other countries each year.
We are only able to financially support these programmes and in certain cases individuals, by contributions that are made by the community and commercial sponsorship.
If you know of anyone who may be able to assist us in raising funds at any time please contact Martin Berliner at our office. It could be that you have a novel way of raising funds or would just like to make a donation or suggestion. We would be pleased to hear from you.
Maccabi GB’s events are covered by charity insurance from Endsleigh.
