Maccabi Tikvat Majar is the community's youth movement (Tnua in Hebrew). It brings brings together each Saturday, in a healthy and fun environment, children and teens between the ages of 3 and 18 to transmit, through non-formal educational activities, content about Judaism, universal values, leadership, Zionism, Maccabee values, among others.
The movement is affiliated with the Maccabi World Union.
Mini Maccabi is a program designed for children from 3 to 5 years old guided by professional teachers. Our primary focus is to provide our Chanichim with Jewish education and Maccabean values in the most age-appropriate way.
Learning takes place in a safe and informal environment that embraces the importance of Tnua, Jewish roots, festivals, traditions, and love of nature and Israel. Most importantly, children are prepared for the transition to Maccabi Youth.

The youth movement is the heart of the Community and was created so that every Saturday, Madrichim (educator teens from 16 to 18 years old) lead groups of Janichim, from 6 to 15 years old, in non-formal educational activities and dynamics, to transmit them knowledge related to universal values, Judaism, Zionism, Maccabean values, personal formation, among many others. All activities are structured within an annual educational program, developed and supervised by the Youth Director and the Roshim (leaders of the Tnua).
In our Takanon we find the Maccabean identity, the history of our community, the symbols that identify us as a Jewish-Zionist youth movement and many other elements that reinforce our belonging to and love for the Tnua. We invite you to explore the version in English or Spanish, prepared for Yonathan, Yehuda, and Shimon.
Aluma is the program to train the future Madrichim and leaders of the movement, between 15 and 16 years old, which consists of preparing, motivating and providing the tools for the future Madrichim of Maccabi, promoting leadership and activism connecting young people with Judaism, Israel and its community.
The program is led by professionals who, with their experience, design activities, workshops, talks, outings and experiences that help meet the objective of training the future leaders of the movement and the community. Aluma culminates with a 30-day trip to Israel where participants can live up close and learn about Israel in an experiential way.
The Madrichim program seeks to offer tools to promote their leadership, take root in their Jewish identity and encourage their creativity. This program seeks to boost the capacities of each Madrich, at the same time that it offers them a space of belonging and friendship to continue developing socially.
It is the annual Macabi Tikvat Majar camp. For 3 days and 2 nights all the Madrichim and Janichim of the Tnua immerse themselves in an incredible adventure, full of activities, workshops, games and unforgettable experiences, surrounded by nature and great friends. During the Machane, volunteer parents help prepare delicious meals for all our Javerim.
