When a young person joins scouting, one of the first things he or she learns is the Boy Scout Oath or the Girl Scout Promise and Law, both of which encourage spiritual journeys through their faith’s religious recognitions.
Each year, to help celebrate the tradition behind scouting’s spiritual journeys, we celebrate a Scout Shabbat, discovering what it means to be Jewish and how it relates to scouting.
To help further a scout’s Jewish education and commitment to scouting, both the Girl and Boy Scouts offer various religious awards that can be earned based on grade level. David Silberman, former Assistant Scout Master and Troop Committee Member and Rabbi Gruber work with youth in the congregation to earn their religious awards.
If any scouts are interested in earning Jewish religious awards, please contact David Silberman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
