About us

Formed in 1995, the Friends of Israel Scouts, Inc. – Tzofim (FOIS) encompasses programs that began in the early 1960s. These programs develop and maintain a connection between the Tzofim (Israel Scouts) movement in Israel and North American Jewry. The Tzofim movement is the only youth movement in Israel that is both non-political and non-sectarian. Both the Tzofim and FOIS recognize that Israel's youth are her hope and future.

Our objectives are to:

  • Strengthen relationships between Israel and North American Jewry
  • Project Israel in a positive light
  • Promote brotherhood, tolerance and respect among people of all faiths
  • Form strong bonds of friendship between the Israeli youth and their American counterparts
  • Provide support for the Tzofim movement in Israel
