Girl Scout Shabbat occurs at the end of the week that includes March 12th, the birthday of Girl Scouts in America. On March 12th, 1912, Juliette Gordon Low, who had just returned to the United States from London called her niece and said that “She had something for all girls.”
Girl Scouts is a value-based organization that encourages members to explore their faith in relationship to the Girl Scout Law. During Girl Scout week, March 6th thru 12th, girls are encouraged to learn something new about faiths other than their own.
