Friendship Caravan performing this weekend

The Tzofim Friendship Caravan, part of a delegation sent to North America to represent the State of Israel each summer, is a group of 10 talented scouts and two adult leaders which travels throughout the U.S. and Canada performing a musical program and interactive activities at camps, schools, community centers and more.

The Caravan has appeared on more than 12 television shows and news segments. The show is made up of songs and dances in Hebrew and English that bring Israeli culture to North America. Local Congregation Etz Chaim in Bentonville has opened the shows to the community and is also using the event as a way to help food banks in Northwest Arkansas. The Congregation asks that all who attend bring non-perishable food items with them. Here’s a list of show times and locations:

Friday:1:30 to 2:30 at the Boys & Girls Club of Bentonville

Saturday: 10 to 11 a.m. at the Bentonville Farmers Market; 7 to 8:15 p.m. at the Northwest Arkansas Community College White Auditorium.
