Let The Games Begin reports that the Maccabiah Games: the 'Jewish Olympics' have begun.

The Maccabiah is the largest Jewish athletics gathering in the world. It was initiated by Yosef Yekutieli, a Jewish athlete and winner of the 1979 Israel Prize. The Maccabi World Union is in charge of its organization. The event houses several historical, medical and journalistic conventions, as well as children's drawing competitions, in addition to the sports competitions.

Learn more about it here. Find out about one of the first winners so far, an Arab Israeli girl, here.
