Gold Kippah Program

Gold Kippah Honor Society and Shabbuddies
Weekly
9:45–10:15 AM 
B’nai Israel’s Gold Kippah Honor Society recognizes students for their proficiency in various prayers. New this year: Pre-b’nai mitzvah students will be “buddied” up with a post-b’nai mitzvah student. Older students will mentor younger students to build stronger tefillah skills while fostering friendships across grades, role modeling, and building an integrated community. 

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 achieving each level, students receiving the Gold Kippah have their names inscribed on a plaque in the Goldberg Youth Chapel.

Click here to see which prayers are in each section, and which are required to complete each level of the Gold Kippah program. Please feel free to use the audio files below or reach out to us if you need additional audio recordings that do not appear here.

In order to share with us that various prayers have been mastered, students are welcome to come on Shabbat mornings at 9:45 AM (30 minutes before the start of Family Minyan) or find one of us during Kiddush

For any questions about Gold Kippah, please contact Rabbi Cheryl Stone.
