About Us
The European Maccabi Confederation (EMC) is one of the six global confederations, which comprises Maccabi World Union (MWU).





As a multinational organisation the EMC is the parent body of Maccabi Territorial Organizations (T.O.’s ) in the Continent of Europe. It represents numerous clubs and thousands of members across 36 countries.

The EMC is dedicated to supporting the long term future of European Jewry by engaging and developing communities in a broad range of sporting, educational and cultural activities, whilst actively promoting Jewish identity, continuity and the centrality of the State of Israel.



Our Activities

The EMC promotes a wide range of programs encompassing tournaments and competitions, leadership training and development, Israel tours and programs together with social and cultural events throughout Europe.

Through the EMC’s education department and the Future Leaders Forum the EMC is committed to developing a new generation of Maccabi leaders.

Building upon the traditions of the Maccabi Movement the EMC is constantly seeking new and innovative ways of communicating effectively with its membership. The EMC’s banner headline “Promoting Jewish Activity in Europe” expresses its aim to enrich and enhance the quality of Jewish lives by healthy pursuits.

Israel is at the very heart of the EMC’s core values and, through youth groups, gap year programs, sports tours, seminars and international Maccabi meetings, offers members an opportunity to join with other Maccabi members from Israel and around the world.

The work of the EMC is intended to benefit its Territorial Organizations (T.O.'s) to strengthen their position within their communities and to ensure their future leadership, whilst promoting Jewish Activity in Europe.
