Jewish Boys from Various Lands Attend Jamboree of Boy Scouts in U.s.; 12 from Israel

Download PDF for this date

Twelve boys from Israel — and an uncounted number of other Jewish boys from the United States and various other lands — are in attendance here at the 12th World Jamboree of the Boy Scouts which is taking place here and will continue through August 11.

Jewish religious services are conducted every morning here in a special tent chapel by the Jamboree’s Jewish chaplain, Rabbi Gilbert Kollin, of Spokane, Washington. Rabbi Kollin said he expected a large turn-out for the Friday evening and Saturday morning Sabbath services to be conducted this weekend. The exact number of Jewish boys here from the United States or from other countries outside Israel could not be estimated because Boy Scouts are not registered by religious affiliation.
