What are the Israeli Scouts in the US and what is Shevet Gefen?
What is Shevet Gefen?
Shevet Gefen is the Long Island Chapter of Tzofim Tzabar. Tzofim Tzabar is part of the international scout movement through the Hebrew Scouts of Israel. Every year Alumni of the Israeli movement are sent to North America as Chapter Leaders to lead these activities with over 2000 youth taking part every week.
Tzofim Tzabar is a Zionist Youth movement that encourages its participants to explore different opportunities to take a meaningful part in Israeli society through our different programs, such as Shnat Sherut Gap Year program and Garin Tzabar IDF service.
The program is funded by the local communities, annual dues and the Israeli-American Council (IAC).
