Ida Freedman Israel Scholarship – Trip Report


The scholarship is intended to support an immersive experience or program that would increase one’s understanding and love of Israel. The value of the scholarship is $10,000.

Applicants should be generally between the ages of 16 and 26 years, and be a member or child or
grandchild of a member of Temple Emanu-El. The award may be made to one person or split between more than one worthy candidate.

This scholarship was made possible through the generosity of the Goldfarb and Goldlist
families who established the fund in1992 in memory of Joan’s and Helen’s mother as
well as other contributors to the Ida Freedman Fund. Every spring the Temple will
oversee competitions for this scholarship, targeted at our young members.
