This Weekend: Israel ScoutsPosted: June 22, 2012
The can’t-miss event this weekend is the Israel Scouts (and there are several opportunities to see them throughout the week, too).
The community should thank Irwin Harris, who since the 1970s has been instrumental in bringing the Israel Scouts Friendship Caravan – Israeli teens who serve as goodwill ambassadors for Israel, singing and dancing their way around the state – to Arizona. All performances are free. See a sample of the performance here.
A group of volunteers, now coordinated by Steve Rosenbaum, works throughout the year to bring the Scouts to Phoenix.
