Emissaries Of Song

The Friendship Caravan is coming to metro
Detroit Aug. 9-12, bringing the spirit of Israel
in lively songs and dances.
Sponsored by the Jewish National Fund, the
caravan consists of Israeli teenagers, members
of the Israel Scouts, chosen for their talent and
enthusiasm. The program has been in exis-
tence for 30 years.
This year, there are two caravans, one touring
America's northern states and the other traveling
through the South. Each consists of 10 scouts and
two adults, who present a choreographed program
of Hebrew and English songs ranging from
"Jerusalem the Gold" to the Beatles' "Let It Be."
The young people also tell personal stories of
life in Israel and interact with audience members.
Last year, the caravan appeared on 12 differ-
ent television shows and performed live for
90,000 viewers.
"This is a great way for Israeli youth to con-
nect - with Americans and vice versa," said
Shoshana Cardin, JNF Vice President for
Education. "It is especially important during
this critical time in Israel's history for us to
show the scouts our support and friendship."
