Netanya Tzofim Campers at Camp Friedlander

This program brings Israeli Scouts (Tzofim) plus one leader to Cincinnati to experience two weeks of Boy Scout Camp at Camp Friedlander. The Israeli Scouts act as informal ambassadors from Israel at camp. They are hosted by families at Congregation Beth Adam. They participate in community service, are exposed to Jewish pluralism, and explore life as an American Jew before and after camp sessions.

 

Netanya Tzofim Campers at Camp Livingston

Ninth grade tzofim (scouts) from Netanya  join the overnight Jewish camp program at Camp Livingston in the “Chalutzim” program.  They participate fully in all camp programming, assist with Israeli programming for American campers, and act as Israeli ambassadors. Before they go to camp, they are hosted in Cincinnati by their peers. They participate in community service, are exposed to Jewish pluralism, and explore life as an American Jew.

Israeli Counselors at Camp at the J

Two post-IDF emissaries are brought as “Israel specialists” to work at Camp at the J, the Mayerson JCC day camp, for the summer session.  These counselors are hosted in Cincinnati homes, and they completely integrate with the full camp community and staff.  They create vibrant, fun, and educational programming which teaches about Israeli culture, history, customs, and society.  The counselors also experience Cincinnati, Jewish life in the diaspora, and Jewish pluralism.

Netanya Counselors at Camp Livingston

Two post-IDF young adults come to Camp Livingston as camp counselors, with a mission of bringing Israel to life for campers. They are fully integrated into the staff at Camp Livingston, our regional overnight summer camp for Jewish youth. The counselors all come from our partnership city of Netanya, to further stengthen the partnership between the two communities.
