Informal Jewish Education
It's called Informal Jewish Education, but the kids know it has nothing to
do with school. Under the auspices of United Synagogue of Conservative
Judaism (USCJ) and guidance of adult advisors, even the most secular
activities (bowling, mini-golf, etc.) can reinforce Jewish values and
Conservative Jewish practice. Advisors can also assure a balance of
activities to include spiritual, cultural and community service activities
along with the social events.
Occasionally, the Youth Department produces fun and fulfilling events for
all of Beth Emeth's young people, regardless of their membership in any of
the youth groups. We also serve as a clearinghouse of information
about other community-wide youth activities such as those at the JCC of
Northern VA, Jewish Experience for Teens (JET), Israel Quest, Jewish Youth
Philanthropy Institute (JYPI) and others.
Sisterhood offers grants to assist
with Jewish camping experience or Israel trip costs for children of Sisterhood
members. The annual application date is July 31.

We Also Have Jewish Scouting
CBE has our very own Cub Pack 1884!
If you’ve been interested in scouting, but hate the idea of Friday night pack
meetings, bacon and eggs at camp outs, or feel uncomfortable meeting in a
church, then CBE’s cub scout pack has a place for your son.
Pack 1884 is sponsored by Beth Emeth, but is open to all boys, regardless of
membership status, race, or religion. We participate in Jewish Scouting
activities, but we follow the same principles of scouting as all the local

In the past we have had an active Daisy Troop,
doing community service, physical and social well-being activities and
selling cookies to support our activities. They used some of the money
they earned to have a bowling party in the summer.
If anyone would like to re-start
a CBE Daisy or Brownie troop, supplies and some funding are available --
Abby Kerbel for more information.
