THE AMY SARA NAPARSTEK ISRAEL SCHOLARSHIP

Our Congregation, together with family and friends of Amy Naparstek, supports this memorial scholarship fund to assist deserving young adults in our congregation to participate in recognized teen programs in Israel.

This fund was established for two major reasons: First, to maintain an ongoing, living memorial within our community to a truly outstanding young woman; secondly, to encourage in our young people a commitment to Israel, Jewish life, Jewish study, and social action – values which Amy exemplified so well.

Among the qualities we seek in candidates are:
  • commitment to Jewish learning by being enrolled in or graduates of our teen educational program;
  • commitment to service to the synagogue by volunteering or assisting in aspects of synagogue or religious school life;
  • commitment to Jewish community by involvement in activities and programs for Jewish youth within our own congregation and in the broader Jewish community;
  • commitment to tikkun olam - social action - by involvement in social action or community service activities or projects.

THE STUART MARKOWITZ ANNUAL SCHOLARSHIP FOR SUMMER CAMP AND PROZDOR

Stuart’s wife Cindy and their two children hope that through the annual scholarship awards, other teenagers will be encouraged to study and enjoy Jewish learning and camping opportunities as Stu did during his teenage years. In keeping with the spirit of encouraging all children, each year these scholarship awards will be given to different students. Although students can apply more than once for the award, preference will be given to students who have not received the scholarship before.

Stuart Markowitz grew up in Sharon, Massachusetts, where he attended public schools and was a Hebrew school student at Temple Israel. While in high school, Stu completed Hebrew College's high school program, Prozdor, now located in Newton. He was a committed student and would spend long hours after school to take public transportation from Sharon to attend Prozdor, then located in Brookline. He also enjoyed his summers at Camp Yavneh, Hebrew College's summer camp in New Hampshire. He recalled many fond memories of playing baseball and working in the camp kitchen, while speaking only Hebrew at the camp. He made many good camp friends over the years there. Stu was a loving father and husband who enjoyed spending time with his family and his friends, many of them from childhood.

Who is awarded the Stuart Markowitz Scholarship:
  • Teenagers who are least 12 by June 30, 2019 and no older than 17 on June 30th and whose family are members of CBE at the time of the award.
  • Students who are planning to attend camp in the summer of 2019 or Prozdor for the fall of 2019.
