We want to let you know about some great scholarship opportunities for your children to enjoy Jewish summer camps and Israel trips. This year you can complete the scholarship form online at https://bnaijeshurun.formstack.com/forms/camp_israel_scholarship_financial_aid. Our scholarship committee will meet in March to determine the awards. All forms are due in by February 28.
If you are a member of B’nai Jeshurun’s Sisterhood, you are eligible for their camp scholarship program. This year we will use a combined form and will forward a copy to Sisterhood if you indicate so on the form. Please note that both scholarships are not dependent on financial need.
In addition, B’nai Jeshurun and the Jewish Federation of Cleveland, in partnership with the Foundation for Jewish Camp, will provide an automatic incentive grant of up to $1,000 for all first-time campers spending at least 19 days at a Jewish summer camp or $750 for those spending less than 19 days. In order to register your child for the grant, please visit https://www.jewishcamp.org/one-happy-camper/. Second year campers at a denominational summer camp (i.e. Camp Ramah) are also eligible for these funds.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact either Rabbi Josh Foster or Wendy Altmire at (216)831-6555. If you have any questions about the Sisterhood Scholarship, contact Bonnie Huston.
