In 2018, the Tzofim Scouts experienced two weeks of Boy Scout Camp at Camp Friedlander. The Israeli Scouts act as informal ambassadors from Israel and are hosted by families at Congregation Beth Adam. They participated in community service, and were exposed to Jewish pluralism before and after camp sessions.

The Tzofim Friendship Caravan is celebrating over 40 years of bringing excitement, energy and friendship to North America! Founded in 1973, the first Caravan came to the United States to bring a message of hope and peace for Israel. Since that first Caravan, the program has grown to three different Caravan travelling across North America, from New York to California to Wyoming and Tennessee. Each Caravan is made up of a group of five girls and five boys and their two leaders. They are chosen to be members of the Caravan based on their maturity, fluency in English, and of course their talent in the performing arts. After several rounds of competitive auditions an interviews, the scouts spend a year training and rehearsing for their exciting summer in North America.


The Israeli Scouts’ visit is sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati and facilitated by P2G (Partnership2Gether), a committee of the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati.
