Formed in 1995, the Friends of Israel Scouts, Inc. – Tzofim (FOIS) is a non-political, non-sectarian organization whose goal is to develop and maintain a connection between the Scouting movement in Israel and North American Jewry. Its 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 Israeli youth and their American counterparts

• Strengthen scouts’ knowledge of Hebrew

• Provide support for the Tzofim movement in Israel.

Shevet Keshet (“the Arch troop”) is the St. Louis troop of FOIS. Shevet Keshet is open to youth in grades 3-12. Meetings are held every Sunday from 4-6 p.m. at Congregation B’nai Amoona, 324 S. Mason Road in Creve Coeur. In addition, there are a number of special events throughout the year, including outdoor field trips, camping trips, ceremonies and celebrations. All activities are held in Hebrew. Find us on Facebook under Shevet Keshet.
