Southern Region Chairman’s Welcome

On behalf of the Southern Region, National Jewish Committee on Scouting,

Welcome to the 2013 National Scout Jamboree!

The Jewish youth and adults participating in the National Scout Jamboree can look forward to a continuing relationship with Jewish Scouting in their home Councils.  The increasing opportunities to participate in Jewish Scouting are the result of the local volunteers working with the youth in their area, along with assistance from The National Jewish Committee on Scouting.  The NJCOS Mission is to promote Boy Scouting among Jewish youth, to help Jewish institutions and local council Jewish committees to provide Scouting opportunities for Jewish youth, and to promote Jewish values in Scouting through program helps and the religious emblems program, including scholarships for financial assistance for Jewish Scouts to further their education.  Sam_Harte

For more information, contact the Jewish Committee on Scouting in your local Council. To organize a committee, contact the regional chairman for NJCOS assistance. 

My best wishes to you for a wonderful Jamboree experience.

Sam Harte

Southern Region Chairman, NJCOS
