Saturday Youth & Family Programs

Gold Kippah Honor Society
Weekly When Family Minyan Meets
10:00–10:15 AM 
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.
