On Friday, November 25, 2016, over 400 Boy Scouts and their families participated in an extraordinary interfaith event and Temple Beth-El of Bellmore is proud to have been a participant.
The scouts and their families walked on a route that took them to several Houses of Worship of different faith. At each stop, they enganged in a dialogue about a different one of the Ten Commandments.
We spoke about the fourth commandment…Remember the Sabbath Day and keep it Holy. Ira Minkoff welcomed the group to TBE and gave a perspective on how we serve the community, David Wayne spoke about the essence of Shabbat and what it means to observe it spiritually and physically, Shari Nadelman, Adam Raclaw and Rachel Minkoff assisted as we opened the Torah to the Ten Commandments and let the families walk by to see it. The scouts and their parents had so many great questions and interest that it was hard to keep to the short amount of time we had.
Below are some pictures that capture this wonderful experience. We thank Larry Frankfort for his photography.
