Cub Scouts


The Cub Scout pack belongs to a community organization. This group makes sure your pack has good adult leaders, a place to meet, and exciting things to do. The group gets help from the Boy Scouts of America, which is part of Scouting around the world.

Ohav Emeth is a chartered partner of the Cub Scouts Pack Five of Highland Park/Edison for boys in grades 1-5. Approximately once per month this Kashrut and Shabbat observing Pack meets at Ohav Emeth.

Approximately once per month we meet as a Pack, which is all the boys together at the Highland Park Recreation Center.  As a youth program of the synagogue, we observe kashrut, Jewish dietary laws and are Sabbath observant, meaning we do not do any activities between sundown Friday to sundown Saturday that would require us to ride in cars, write or cook. Of course, boys of all faiths are welcome to participate. (We have a partner Boy Scout Troop in Highland Park, Troop 55, that follows the same standards and is equally welcoming of all boys.)
