Jewish Committee - Jewish Religious Emblems Posted Feb. 7, 2013
The National Jewish Committee offers several religious emblem programs to further a Scout’s religious involvement and education. Programs are tailored to be age and grade appropriate from the youngest Cub Scout to Boy Scouts, Venturers and Sea Scouts. The Maccabbe Emblem is available to Cub Scouts in 1st-3rd grade, the Aleph Emblem to Cub Scouts in 3rd -5th grade, the Ner Tamid Emblem to Boy Scouts in 6th-9th grade, and the Etz Chiam Emblem to Boy Scouts, Venturers and Sea Scouts in 9th grade and up. Upon completion of the requirements for any of these emblems a Scout will receive the appropriate medal and certificate, and will be recognized at the annual Scout Shabbat Service.
