ILANA SCHUSTER JONSSON SCHOLARSHIP FUND

THE H. STEVEN AND NANCY ROTH EDUCATION FUND
Created in 2008, this fund provides need-based college scholarships to immigrants in Israel, giving preference to applicants who have served in the Israeli Defense Forces, by invitation only. Last year, the fund provided ten Technion students with scholarship support toward living expenses—food, housing and transportation costs—enabling them to dedicate themselves to their studies. All ten are immigrants from the former Soviet Union who moved to Israel without their families.

The fund distributes up to $1,000 annually to each synagogue’s selected recipient. Please contact the congregations’ rabbis to learn more.
