B’nai Israel’s Gold Kippah Honor Society recognizes students for their proficiency in various prayers. Students mark completion of each prayer with a sticker on their individualized Gold Kippah forms and are awarded at four levels: Blue Kippah, Bronze Kippah, Silver Kippah, and Gold Kippah. In addition to receiving an appropriately colored kippah for each level, students receiving the Gold Kippah have their names inscribed on a plaque in the Goldberg Youth Chapel.
Our Gold Kippah Siddur presents the prayers that children learn for the Honor Society, arranged by level. The siddur includes a booklet, a PDF with sound, and a CD. The siddur is distributed to all Talmud Torah students in grades 3–7. Others are invited to pick up a free copy from the Education Office.
Visit our audio pages to access the sound files.
