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.
On Friday June 12th, our 5:30pm Zoom Kabbalat Shabbat Service will include a special blessing for Boy & Girl Scouts. The Rabbi is collecting photos of our community scouts in uniform and a photo montage will be created and shown during the service. Please send a photo to: firstname.lastname@example.org by June 1st to be included!
