WRJ/TBK Sisterhood Scholarships and Camperships

WRJ/TBK Sisterhood provides several opportunities for scholarships and camperships, including those listed below:

Bernstein Award for Judaic Studies

The Philip S. Bernstein Scholarship Award is given to one or more young people in our congregation. This award originated as a WRJ/TBK Sisterhood loan fund more than 50 years ago. It was renamed in 1986 to honor the memory of Rabbi Philip S. Bernstein, who served as spiritual leader of our temple for more than five decades. In 1999, the fund was redesigned to be a monetary award rather than a loan. The recipients exemplify all the qualities for which Rabbi Bernstein stood. The award is given based upon commitment to Judaism and sincere interest in the pursuit of studies related to that commitment. The award will be given to persons of high school age and above who have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to Judaism. The scholarship is not based on financial need.

The deadline for application is April 15, 2019.

Parashat

Parashat Beshalach

In this Torah portion, God tells Moses to have the Israelites set up camp at the Sea of Reeds, but then Pharaoh changes his mind about freeing the Israelites and chases his former slaves. With the Egyptians on the Israelites’ tail, God splits the sea and Moses leads the Israelites through it. When the Egyptians enter, God closes the waters, and the Egyptians drown. Miriam leads all the Israelite women in song and dance to celebrate. Soon after, the Israelites begin to complain about life in the desert. God provides quail and manna to feed them. The Israelites battle the Amalekites and win.
