To provide funds to help finance a trip to Israel for a Confirmation class graduate. Any student in the current Confirmation class whose parent is a member in good standing will be eligible.

Through this fund, the temple will set aside $300 for each student, subject to sufficiency of funds. The student will be appraised on the basis of his/her Religious and Hebrew School experience, attitudes, achievements, leadership qualities and intellectual promise. Applications by students should include a self-appraisal, profile of their Jewish identity, and their reasons for wanting to travel and/or study in Israel.
