The Israel Scouts: Tzofim meet every Sunday between 4:00-6:00 pm at the MJCCA. The Israeli community in the USA is estimated at 600,000-800,000 people. Tzofim Tzabar (Israeli Scouts in the USA) works with 4th-12th graders of this Israeli community (permanent and temporary residents), emphasizing social and moral development.
This program, conducted in Hebrew, helps youth and teens develop physically, intellectually, and socially, through age-specific activities including games, discussions, projects, camping trips, ceremonies, holiday celebrations, music, sport, and fun!
Being a youth-led movement, veteran scouts (ages 15-18) become counselors for younger members and experience the responsibility and leadership of guiding others. In winter and summer, each troop travels to an overnight camp to participate nature hikes, sports events, and scouting activities.
