Jewish Education Fund
Did you know that GHC has a fund set up to provide stipends to parents whose children attend the following summer programs?
Ramah Day Camp (Nyack); USY Pilgrimage (Israel, Eastern Europe) and Summer Abroad Programs
Ramah Sleep-Away Camps; USY Encampment
USY on Wheels ; Etgar
Ramah Sports Camp (new day camp)
These are fabulous and well-run programs; ask any child who has attended these! The Ramah Camps and USY
summer programs are a valuable, enriching experience for our youth.
The Jewish Education Fund (JEF), through the generous contributions of the members of GHC, strives to help
children of our community to enrich their lives, continue to learn and prepare themselves for a future full Jewish
life. The JEF supports and encourages the education of our young people beyond the scope of our religious school
programs. Based on appropriate recommendations and criteria, JEF provides stipends to defray parent costs of the
activities listed above. If your child attended any of these programs this summer, please contact the JEF
Committee Chairpeople, Robin Rosenberg and Bruce Segall at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive an
application. If you want more information about any of these programs or camps, please contact Robin at VPYouth@g-h-c.org.
The JEF also administers the Harry and Anna Singer Scholarship Fund for study in Israel. Funds from this fund may be available to students (high school or college) who spend a semester or a summer in Israel. Please contact Rabbi Kenter or Robin or Bruce about this.
The funds available to the JEF come from the generous contributions of our congregants. Please remember JEF
when considering making a contribution in memory of a loved one or to honor a family simcha.
Thank you to everyone who supports the Jewish Education Fund.
