Each year, Congregation Beth Shalom proudly offers a Scout Shabbat, celebrating our Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. All scouts attending this service in uniform will receive a special patch.
In addition, we encourage our scouts to work during the year to earn their Religion Emblems. If you have received this during the year, then Scout Shabbat is a time to have it officially bestowed by the Rabbi, and for you to proudly wear it and show off. More info on earning these emblems can be found at:
- National Jewish Committee on Scouting, Boy Scouts of America
- National Jewish Committee on Girl Scouting, Inc.
Our next Scout Shabbat will take place on February 3, 2012, at the early evening Family Service.
