SALT LAKE CITY – Israeli scouts will again perform for Wasatch Front audiences this year, singing, dancing and sharing Israeli culture and folklore.
Hosted by the United Jewish Federation of Utah, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Great Salt Lake Council of the Boy Scouts of America, the Israeli Scout Friendship Caravan has become a regular part of the summer’s entertainment in northern Utah.
This year, 10 high school seniors from Israel are touring the United States, telling their story through song and artistry. They were chosen through an “American Idol” type national search, according to a press release from the federation.
The public is invited to the free presentations, beginning Tuesday, July 9 at 8 p.m., when the group performs as part of the Concerts in the Park series at Brigham Young Historic Park, 100 N. State Street, Salt Lake City.
On Wednesday, July 10, the group will perform at Camp Tomahawk at the Bear River Scout Reservation.
On Thursday, July 11, they will perform twice: at the pavilion at the Bear Lake Aquatics Center at 12:30 p.m. and at Congregation Kol Ami, 2425 Heritage Way, Salt Lake City, at 7 p.m.
The Utah portion of the tour wraps up on Friday, July 12 at Temple Har Shalom, 3700 N. Brookside Court, Park City, at 7:30 p.m., following Shabbat services.
