The National Jewish Committee on Scouting developed the Aleph emblem to help you, a Cub Scout or Webelos Scout who is Jewish, learn more about Judaism. Just as Aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, the activities you are about to start working on are among your first steps as a Scout that will lead you to understanding more about your religion. Working on the Aleph emblem also will help you get to know better your rabbi or religious school teacher. One of them will be your counselor and will help you along the way.
You may begin to work on the Aleph emblem as soon as you enter the third grade. Most Cubs begin work on the Aleph emblem when they are working on their Bear or Webelos badge. All requirements must be completed while the Cub is a registered member of a Cub Scout pack and before he completes the fifth grade in school.
The Aleph emblem is a medal worn over the left pocket of your Cub Scout uniform. It has a Torah and a Ner Tamid on it, to remind you that once you have earned it, others will depend upon you to teach them.
