Tzofim - Friends of Israel Scouts

We’ve uncovered photos from the first Friendship Caravan visiting America 40 years ago! My, how we’ve grown! 

In honor of this year’s 40th anniversary celebration of our Tzofim Friendship Caravan, here is a clipping from a local newspaper of our 1984 Caravan visiting the Temple Emanuel community in Tempe, Arizona. Amazing!

Fundraising Event Update: Scarsdale, New York

The Scarsdale community members joined us at the home of Ronit Bentov, a long-time and strong supporter of Friends of Israel Scouts. We have always enjoyed our great relationship with Ronit, and it was truly a pleasure to share this special moment with her. We heard from Ilana Rosenzweig, who is originally from New Jersey and now lives with her Garin in Kibbutz Urim, while serving in the Air Force. Afterward we enjoyed a fabulous performance by Caravan Moriah

Israel Photo of the Day: déjà vu
Here is an amazing photo of this Summer’s Southeast Caravan, Caravan Amos, at a host’s house in Delray Beach, Florida. They are watching a video of the Caravan of Summer 1992, performing in Delray Beach, Florida. This highlights a key element we love about the Tzofim; the deep and rich history we have with Zionism, Israel, and American Jewry. We love being able to say we are connecting young Israelis with older Americans who have been working with the Tzofim for over 20 years. Kol HaKavod, Delray Beach, for keeping the history alive!
