The United Jewish Federation of Utah invites you to come and enjoy the exciting and entertaining Israeli Scouts performers. This song & dance troupe introduces Israeli culture and folklore in performances for audiences of all ages, races and religions, and expresses the vast cultural diversity in Israel. Laugh and sing along as these ten fantastic High School seniors tell their stories through song and artistry. They were chosen after a competitive “American Idol” like national search. The Israel Scouts are part of the International Scouting movement. The Israeli Scouts are proudly sponsored by the United Jewish Federation of Utah, the Church of Jesus Christ Latter-Day Saints Foundation, and the Great Salt Lake Council Boy Scouts of America. They will certainly entertain.
