February 5, 2016
Once again, Temple Emanu-El in Haverhill, Massachusetts has offered to host Scout Shabbat on Friday, February 5th, 2016.
Scout Shabbat offers an opportunity for Scouts to show their duty to God, an integral part of the Scout Oath/Promise, and allows worshipers to honor Scouts and Scout Leaders in the community for their achievements and service. This is done as part of the standard Jewish Friday Night Service.
Last year, over 100 Scouts from the area participated in this event and I ask for your assistance in spreading the word. The event is open to all Scouts and their families, regardless of religious affiliation.
For more information on Scout Shabbat, please visit the National Jewish Committee on Scouting's web site HERE
There is no charge for this event and all Scouts who attend in uniform will receive a commemorative patch.
Yours in Scouting,
Jewish Committee on Scouting
