Tzofim Friendship Caravan coming
to the JCC July 28

The 2016 Tzofim Friendship Caravan, AFIK.

The Central New York Chapter of Friends of Israel Scouts announces the local performances for the 2016 Tzofim Friendship Caravan. Since 1985, the Central New York Chapter of Friends of Israel Scouts has been welcoming the Tzofim Friendship Caravan to this area.

The Caravan’s founders “aim high and want to work toward a better society so that there is a strong connection between the people of Israel and America. Through song and dance, conversation and activities, the Tzofim Friendship Caravan hopes to “warm your hearts” and “bring a piece of Israel to you.”

The show takes audiences on a voyage of sounds and images that represent Israel’s people, cultures, heritage and landmarks. The Caravan’s mission is to teach, learn and create friendships in the community. Organizers are “delighted to share” this experience within the Central New York region. This summer’s Caravan is named AFIK.

The Caravan will perform its first show at the Binghamton Jewish Community Center on Tuesday, July 26 at 7 p.m. The second show will take place at the Utica Jewish Community Federation of the Mohawk Valley on Wednesday, July 27 at 7 p.m.

The Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center of Syracuse will showcase the Tzofim Friendship Caravan on Thursday, July 28 at 7 p.m.

The Caravan’s last performance will take place at Menorah Park on Friday, July 29 at 2 p.m.

These shows are made possible with funds provided by the State and Local Partnership Program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), through its decentralization initiative administrated locally by CNY Arts. Organizers would like to thank the Jewish Federation of Central New York, the Pomeranz, Shankman and Martin Charitable Foundation and individual donors for making our programming possible.
