B'nai Shalom is excited to announce a new Shomer Shabbat, Shomer Kashrut Cub Scout Pack in West Orange. Jewish Scouting is a time-honored program of character and leadership training for our boys of all backgrounds and skill levels. Boys learn outdoor skills, character values, and citizenship all within a Jewish context.
Pack 365 (The number of "Positive Mitzvot" in the Torah), is open to all boys grades 1-5, and has a mix of day school and religious school families. Shabbat is fully observed while camping, Kashrut(kosher laws) is observed with mainstream packaged hekhshers only (O/U, StarK, etc). The pack is open to all boys and adult volunteers of any family background, without prejudice, and is chartered by Congregation B'nai Shalom, 300 Pleasant Valley Way, West Orange NJ 07052.
