Israel Photo of the Day: Caravan Pisgah!
In the last two weeks, last year’s group of Caravan Pisgah has been traveling the country performing, having returned to America for a special 2-week Yom HaAtzmaut tour. They performed at community centers, synagogues, and more; got to spend time with old friends from last Summer; and participated in special activities with the new shevet in Philadelphia. What a blast! Here’s just one of many awesome photographs from their time spent here. Can’t wait for this Summer’s new Friendship Caravans to arrive? Let us know!
Israel Photo of the Day: Friendship Caravan Atzmaut Tour!
This week, we were graced with the arrival of last Summer’s Caravan Pisgah crew, who are back for 2 weeks of touring the Tri-State area on a tour for Yom Ha’Atzmaut. So far, Pisgah has been quite a hit, singing classic Israeli folk songs and more! We love Israel, we love Yom HaAtzmaut, and we love Tzofim Friendship Caravan!! What’s your favorite Israeli song?

Israel Photo of the Day - Israel Education
As we prepare for Yom HaAtzmaut, Israeli Independence Day next week, we feature here a photo of CVK-ers visiting the grave of Israel’s first Prime Minister. This photo is a throwback to Chetz v’Keshet 2007, but the fact remains the same: CVK is not only a life-changing, friendship-forming, and all around joyous experience for participants, it is also a key step in educating participants about Israel and Zionism. Here, participants learned about David Ben Gurion and his dream to grow and enrich the Negev, which is why he is buried there. We learn through experience, visiting Ben Gurion’s home, and learning about environmental and agricultural initiatives being cultivated in Southern Israel, an important aspect of Israel today.
