Camp and Israel Scholarships Available
Scholarships are available from several Richmond Jewish Foundation funds to study and travel in Israel and to attend overnight Jewish summer camp. Completed applications are due in the RJF office by Friday, March 1, 2019.
Study and Travel in Israel
The Mooney, Rose & Mosey Greenberg Israel Scholarship Fund was established over thirty years ago by the Greenberg Family as a tribute to their parents and brother in recognition of the family’s long support of the State of Israel. The Fund provides grants to Richmond area youth traveling to Israel who meet certain criteria. Need-based scholarships of approximately $1000 are available depending on the number of qualified applicants.
Overnight Jewish Summer Camp Experience
In 1987, the Sroka/Karp Memorial Fund was established by Bill and Sandy Sroka, in memory of their parents, to provide partial need-based scholarships to Richmond and Tidewater area students interested in attending Jewish overnight summer camps. Summer campers are exposed to the richness of Jewish life, including the beauty of Shabbat, the meaning of prayer and familiarity with the Hebrew language, as well as traditional camp activities. Need-based scholarships of approximately $250-$500 are available depending on the number of qualified applicants.
