Scholarships for Israel Experiences

Fund for Teenage Jewish Programs
Each year Kane Street accepts applications for the Ben and Martha Friedman Scholarship, established by Drs. Mordechai z”l and Ellen Friedman in memory of Mordechai’s beloved parents.

The $1,000 scholarship supports Kane Street teenagers (13-18) who will engage in a new activity during the coming year that contributes to their Jewish knowledge and identity. Financial need and the applicant’s involvement with Synagogue activities will also be taken into account.

Candidates, including students interested in the Bronfman fellowship (see item below), should submit to the Rabbi a 300- to 500-word proposal describing the activity, and how they believe it will contribute to an increased knowledge of Judaism, and to their overall Jewish pride and identity. The deadline for submission is December 26, 2016.

Bronfman Youth Fellowships in Israel (BFYI)
The goal of of the Bronfman Youth Fellow is to help students who will enter the 12th grade of High School in the following Fall to better understand the whole spectrum of the Jewish people and challenges of the Jewish future.

Fellows spend five weeks in Israel over the summer after graduation, immersed in an intensive exploration of Jewish texts, pluralism and social responsibility. Applications are typically due by the end of the calendar year. To speak with local students who are former Bronfman Youth Fellows, please contact the Rabbi.
