Makkabi Germany Winter Games to be held in Bavaria in January 2023
For the first time since 1936, the Makkabi Germany Winter Games will take place in Ruhpolding, Bavaria, on January 2-9, 2023. After the Nazi regime destroyed the Jewish sports movement in Germany, the Makkabi movement was officially reestablished in 1965, but this will be the first winter sports event for Jewish athletes in Germany after more than 85 years.
Jewish athletes will compete in seven sports (alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, laser biathlon, snowboarding, figure skating, snow volleyball and curling) and 16 various disciplines. The 2023 Makkabi Germany Winter Games are supported by the Genesis Philanthropy Group.
