BETH EL SUMMER SCHOLARSHIPS FOR 2021
Jan 9 – May 31 all-day
BETH EL SUMMER SCHOLARSHIPS FOR 2021
Usually, during this time of year, the Beth El Bulletin invites families to apply for scholarships for Jewish summer activities. Because of COVID-19, many programs may still be in limbo, and if the camps are up and running, many parents may still be debating whether to allow their children to participate.
The Scholarship Committee does have funds available and would be glad to assist in paying camp expenses as they have done in the past. If you have a child, or children, that are signed up for an eligible program, please contact Committee Chairperson Dorothy Spitalney by phone, 425-5443 or email nanadls11@gmail.com.
