Tzofim Garin Tzabar
On June 16th, the consulate participated in the Garin Tzabar farewell ceremony for 20 students. Garin Tzabar is a program run by the Friends of the Israel Scouts which is for Diaspora Jews and children of Israelis who choose to move to Israel and serve in the IDF. The students are adopted by the Israel Scouts and placed in hosting Kibbutz that quickly becomes their home away from home throughout the duration of their army service. we wish the 20 students leaving the Florida community all the best!
More about Friends of Israel Scouts, Inc. – Tzofim
Formed in 1995, the Friends of Israel Scouts, Inc. – Tzofim (FOIS) encompasses programs that began in the early 1960s. These programs develop and maintain a connection between the Tzofim (Israel Scouts) movement in Israel and North American Jewry. The Tzofim movement is the only youth movement in Israel that is both non-political and non-sectarian. Both the Tzofim and FOIS recognize that Israel’s youth are her hope and future.
There are two sessions for Garin Tzabar 2012 from North America.
The Summer Session:
The Summer program begins with the preparation process in December which includes 4-5 seminars and continues with the program in Israel in August.
The Winter Session:
The Winter session will begin with the preparation process in November with a phone interview followed by a seminar. The preparation process is followed by the program in Israel which will start in December. This Winter Garin has limited spots, and we will put a stronger emphasis on Hebrew level of candidates, as the process is shorter.
Garin Tzabar members are Jewish Americans and children of Israelis living in the Diaspora who choose to move to Israel and serve in the IDF. - See more at: http://www.masaisrael.org/programs/tzofim-garin-tzabar#sthash.DyNctxfy.dpuf
