The Jewish federation of Jacksonville will host its annual Five Agency Meeting and celebration, Thursday, June 8 at River Garden Senior Services, and performing after the formal installation of board members and officers of the four partner agencies will be the world renowned Israeli Scouts.

 

The Tzofim Friendship Caravan is celebrating more than 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 caravans traveling across North America, from New York to California, 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 performing arts. After several rounds of competitive auditions and interviews, the scouts spend a year training and rehearsing for their exciting summer in North America. Please make plans to join in this celebration and share in an incredible evening with Caravan Ziv, who will delight guests with song and bring the spirit of Israel alive in our community.
