A few days ago I was blessed to take in the Friendship Caravan, a presentation of Tzofim, a group of Israeli scouts (similar to Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts in America). These are incredible 16-17 year-old Israelis, engaged in service projects and in training to become leaders. Three teams of 10 are criss-crossing America right now and they are well worth seeing. Of 80,000 Israeli scouts, 1,200 try out for the opportunity to represent Israel for the summer in North America. Only 30 are chosen.
If you are in the Phoenix area, you have two last opportunities to catch the Friendship Caravan:
- Monday, June 19 @ 7:00pm – Temple Solel, 6805 E McDonald Drive, Paradise Valley
- Tuesday, June 20 @ 7:00pm – Temple Kol Ami, 15030 N 64th Street, Scottsdale
If you live elsewhere in the US, click here to find out if Tzofim will be in your area.
