Israeli Friendship Caravan

Come and enjoy, “Everything Israel” at the Weinstein JCC! Experience Israeli food, culture, history, and entertainment, without getting on an airplane. This exciting event offers something for everyone. Try some Israeli cuisine, take a ride on a camel, learn Krav Maga, enjoy a special performance by the Israeli Friendship Caravan and more! The Caravan is made up of 10 high school-aged students who travel throughout the United States performing Israeli songs and dances.

Activities are free. Food and camel rides available for purchase.
