A Scout is Reverent.
The Jewish Committee on Scouting helps support Jewish Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venture Scouts and Girl Scouts who want to earn their religious emblems:. We also have a recognition event to formally recognize and/or award the scout on their accomplishment. If you would like to present the scout instead at your own unit Court of Honor, we are happy to arrange for a representative to attend and present the award.
The actual work take place (depending on level) at home, with your Rabbi, or with an authorized counselor.
All Jewish Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venture Scouts and Girl Scouts are encouraged to earn their appropriate award.
What Emblem Can I Earn:
(Venturer’s can do the Etz Chaim award as well.
Girl Scouts have the following awards
The Jewish Awards for Girl Scouts are:
|Grades 2 – 3 – Lehavah Award
Grades 4 – 6 – Bat Or Award
Grades 7 – 9 – Menorah Award
Grades 10 – 12 – Or Emunah Award
Unfortunately, the Girl Scouts do not have links to the workbooks online and must be ordered by mail.
Can I still work on this if my family doesn’t do much religious stuff?: Definitely YES. We hope that this helps better connect you to Judaism and learn more about your religion. Did you know that at every rank, the new Boy Scout advancement requirements include : Tell how you have done your duty to G-d.”
