Rockland District Jewish Committee On ScoutingHudson Valley Council, BSA
MISSION STATEMENT: To promote Scouting among Jewish Youth, to help Jewish institutions provide opportunities for Jewish youth, to promote Jewish values in scouting through our Annual Awards Breakfast, Scout Shabbats, the religious emblems program, and outreach to Jewish Scouts in non-Jewish units.
EMBLEMS & AWARDS: Requirements and Applications for all religious emblems and awards may be obtained from the Scout Shop or from the "active online links" stated below.
COMMITTEE PATCH: The Rockland District Jewish Committee on Scouting has a souvenir patch, as shown above. When attending any sponsored Rockland County Jewish Committee on Scouting (JCOS) event (e.g. Scout Shabbat, Religious Services at Camporee, Awards Breakfast...) each participant will be provided with a patch in remembrance of participating in the event. Initially, patches will not be available for purchase. At the end of our event year, any patches remaining will be sold for a minimal cost of $5.00 each. This is a great opportunity for patch collectors to expand their present collection and for Jewish Scouts and Scouters to show you are part of a great organization. If you are interested in purchasing the patch, please contact our Committee Chairperson Debbie Klock via the e-mail shown on this page.
SCOUT SHABBAT: There will be Scout Shabbat Services for all scouts and their families on Friday, February 5, 2010 at the Nanuet Hebrew Center, 411 South Little Tor Road, New City, NY at 7:00 PM. Please wear your uniforms because all scouts that recently earned their religious emblems will be recognized. Refer to the flyer REGISTRATION FORM. JEWISH SCOUT EMBLEM WORKSHOP: We are having a "Jewish Scout Emblem Workshop" to be held on Sunday, November 15, 2009 at the Bullowa Training Center from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM. Jewish Scouts will learn about the various age appropriate religious awards and will be able to work on a few of the requirements. Please call Jill Tanney at (845) 638-4518 with any questions.
AWARDS BREAKFAST: Our Eighth Annual Hudson Valley Council Awards Breakfast was held on Sunday, June 5, 2005 at the Camp Bullowa Training Center, Franck Road, Stony Point, New York. It was a great success! At this awards breakfast, we honored Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts who have earned their jewish scout religious medals. Our guest speaker/presenter for this event was County Legislator Ellen Jaffee from the Town of Ramapo. In recognition of his years of outstanding service and promotion of Jewish Scouting, the Shofar Award was presented to Irving S. Schrom of Pomona, New York. The following scouts were presented with their respective religious medals:
Maccabee Award (Stephen Badinelli - Pack 46, Peter O'Neill - Pack 47)
Aleph Award (Will Badinelli - Pack 46, Jonathan O'Neill & Jared Simon - Pack 47)
