Mission Statement - Hanhagat Tzabar

Tzofim Tzabar is a Zionist youth movement, whose mission is to operate and develop educational settings and values, in which children and young adults – members of the Israeli community in North America – will engage in a variety of social and educational Zionist experiences, which will help to build in them knowledge of and love for the Land of Israel.


The Youth Movement is an integral part of the Israel Scouts and the Friends of Israel Scouts in North America, and thus we act in accordance of the visions, goals, and guiding principles of both organizations.


Tzofim Tzabar encourages its participants to engage in activities that enhance the community and society. We aim to be a significant role in shaping the character and quality of Israeli society through programs and volunteer services that lead to maximum realization of participants’ talents and their ability to contribute to Israeli society through service and communal partnership.
