PROVIDENCE – Are you searching for something new and different for a lazy summer evening?
An energetic band of Israeli Scouts, “Caravan,” will arrive at the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island, bringing Israeli culture, music and dance, as well as a message of peace, on Wednesday, August 7.
The teenagers will perform in concert for our Jewish community and in other venues.
Caravan’s free concert, suitable for all ages, is open to the community and begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Alliance JCC Social Hall. Israeli food will be available for sale at 5:30 p.m.
The Caravan is a summer delegation of 10 teens and two chaperones from Israel that travels across the United States and Canada. This group of dancers and singers follows in the footsteps of other groups who have been performing for audiences for more than 40 years.
The Caravan also offers a number of educational activities, including Israeli dance, trivia, Israel Defense Forces training, scouting activities and more. These activities take performances to the next level, giving audience members the opportunity to learn more about Israel while getting to know the individual group members. While in Rhode Island, the teens will engage campers in camp activities at Camp JORI and the Alliance’s J-Camp. They will also perform at the senior kosher café.
Though many of the teens live in the Tel Aviv area, some are from elsewhere, including Afula, which, with the Gilboa area, is Rhode Island’s sister community in Israel.
Boy Scouts who attend the concert may be able to earn credit for their Citizenship in the World requirement.
Please join us to welcome and meet these energetic young performers.
LARRY KATZ (421-4111, ext. 179) is director of education at the Alliance.
