Service Grant Application 2020

To enable our young people to go to Jewish camps or trips to Israel, Beth El has established the Service Grant Program. Any student may receive a grant to attend an approved program and "repay" the grant with service to Beth El during the following school year. Applicants for Israel programs need to provide service in both the years before and after the service grant award. Another great way to help fund Israel trips for your kids is the Federation's Passport to Israel program. Ask Eadie for details.

We hope to teach young people the importance of community service through the Service Grant Program while encouraging participation in Jewish summer experiences. When our young people take part in such programs, both the children and Beth El benefit from the experience. We also encourage your child's participation in these programs because a Jewish summer experience is the perfect complement to formal Jewish education.

Beth El Service Grants are provided through the generosity of the Seth Rich Memorial Camp Scholarship Fund.

Application Deadline: March27
