Jewish Committee - Jewish Cub Scout Emblems Workshop Posted Jan. 4, 2017
The Connecticut Yankee Council Jewish Committee on Scouting will host the Jewish Cub Scout Emblems Workshop on Sunday, January 22, 1:30-4:00 p.m. at Congregation Or Shalom, 205 Old Grassy Hill Road, Orange. Jewish Cub Scouts can come out for an afternoon of fun and learning, and earn either the Maccabee or Aleph emblem. Tigers, Wolves and Bears are eligible to work towards earning the Maccabee Emblem. Bears who have already earned the Maccabee emblem, and Webelos/Arrow of Light Scouts work on the Aleph Emblem. Both programs are designed help Jewish Cub Scouts learn more about Judaism, their faith, and Duty To God.
A $25 program fee covers all learning materials, a snack, and lots of fun! Each Scout must be accompanied by an adult partner who will be in attendance for the duration of the program.
Maccabee award candidates need their Hebrew names and those of their parents and grandparents. Aleph award candidates need to attend six Sabbath services and write a brief description of three Torah portions. If these requirements are not completed by January 22, the Scout may finish them at a later date. EMBLEMS WILL BE PRESENTED TO THOSE SCOUTS WHO COMPLETE ALL REQUIREMENTS ON OR BY JANUARY 22 AT A SCOUT SHABBAT SERVICE. THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL FEE FOR THE EMBLEMS. Space is limited, so sign-up now.
