ScoutsSPECIAL FOR THE AJT //

For over 30 years the Israel Scout Friendship Caravan, the Tzofim, has been touring the U.S. and performing in metro Atlanta. The group provides a wonderful evening of entertainment, while offering a taste of Israel through song and dance.

The scouts – five girls and five boys – are in their late teens, generally between the ages of 16 and 18. They are multi-lingual, performing in English, Hebrew and even Yiddish.

For many years, Pat and Bob Pugrant have made it their mission to bring the scouts to Atlanta each summer. They and a group of dedicated volunteers raise funds for the program so the show will continue at little cost to the public.

This year’s show will be on June 27t at Temple Emanu-El in Sandy Springs.

“For years I have been bringing my children to enjoy the Friendship Caravan,” said Lisa Mallis. “These teens bring the joy and love of Israel to our communities, building friendships and fostering a better understanding of the Israeli youth of today.”
