Host Families

The Dallas Jewish Community has a longstanding relationship with the Caravan dating back several decades and this year we are excited to inform you that we are expanding back to 7 nights this summer. 

Anyone who has hosted can tell you about the amazing relationship you develop with your guest.  It’s a wonderful opportunity for your children to learn about Israel from a peer, build long lasting relationships and have friends to visit when they travel to Israel for their teen tour! 

The Guidelines:

  • Host family must be Jewish
  • Must have at least one child in the 10 – 18 year old range
  • At least one parent must be at home during the stay (This simply means that you can’t leave a scout with an 18 year old while mom and dad are traveling to Rome or some other fabulous place!)
  • We will match Scouts with families of similar dietary observance

Expectations:

  • The Caravan has activities during the weekdays, you will need to provide transportation to a drop off point in North Dallas in the mornings (before 8 am) and pick them back up in the late afternoon/evening.  For those that live in Frisco or further North, you are welcome to drop your scout at my home which is near Parker & the Dallas North Tollroad in Plano.
  • There are a few evening activities which host families will be invited to join.
  • Spend time with your Scout as a family.  They are here to learn about America and build relationships with you as well.
  • There is an annual host family orientation within a month of the Caravan’s arrival where will we be able to share which Scout you’ve been matched with.
