Congregation Beth Ohr Scholarship Information


Dear Congregant,

We would like to inform you that the following scholarships are available to deserving members or children
of our synagogue members whose families are in good financial standing.  A student may apply for any or all
awards for which he/she is eligible.  All require an application and essay. The same essay may be used for the
Gesher, and Goldstein scholarships, or different essays may be written; the Bloomstone essay is briefer, with different parameters.  The successful applicant for the first two awards will be able to describe in detail actual activities which demonstrate his or her Jewish commitment.

Gesher Scholarship:  Any graduating high school senior who has been accepted to a college or technical training school
is eligible for this award. A student may apply before he/she is accepted but the check will go to the school that accepts him or her.  The focus is on making a place for the synagogue in one’s life. Award has been $1000 to one student, or a

lesser amount, not necessarily evenly divided, if split between two students.

Harriet Goldstein Scholarship:  Any student up to and including the age of 18 is eligible.  The award is to be used to
further the student’s knowledge, background, or interest in Jewish life.  Maximum award is $100.

of the award is to encourage the pursuit of Jewish learning through attendance at Kadima or USY end of summer encampment.  Past award has been $75 to any student who goes to METNY Kadima/USY Encampment.
