Scout Shabbat

Yesterday was Scout Shabbat.  All the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts were invited to wear their uniforms and participate in the service.

About 2/3 of the Boy Scouts were their uniforms while only about 1/3 of the Girl Scouts were their uniform.  Most of our troop attended services and helped lead Adon Olam at the end of services. This will help them earn their Lehevah Award

 Froggy received a special honor of being allowed to hold the Torah during the Haftorah portion.  She sat next to the Rabbi during the last few aliyot and got to count the 10 Commandments as they were ready.  She was positively thrilled and did a fantastic job.  She was still and respectful.  She told me afterwards that she loved holding the Torah and stroked it as she listened to the Haftorah.  For a child who is not even usually in the sanctuary during the Torah service, it was a very big change.
