GHC YOUTH IS NOW BBYO

GHC Youth is now affiliated with the BBYO movement. Our Youth Chairperson, Nancy Silverman can be reached at YouthChair@ghcny.org . GHC has teens who have become quite involved in BBYO and serve on the local chapter board. More information about our Youth program and activities will be added to this section - stay tuned! 

 

Jewish Education Fund

Did you know that GHC has a fund set up to provide stipends to parents whose children attend the following summer programs?
Ramah Day Camp (Nyack or any other Ramah Day Camp);   USY Pilgrimage (Israel, Eastern Europe) and Summer Abroad Programs
Ramah Sleep-Away Camps;   USY Encampment
USY on Wheels 
Ramah Sports Camp , Ramah in the Rockies

These are fabulous and well-run programs; ask any child who has attended these! The Ramah Camps and USY summer programs are a valuable, enriching experience for our youth.

The Jewish Education Fund (JEF), through the generous contributions of the members of GHC, strives to help children of our community to enrich their lives, continue to learn and prepare themselves for a future full Jewish life. The JEF supports and encourages the education of our young people beyond the scope of our religious school programs. Based on appropriate recommendations and criteria, JEF provides stipends to defray parent costs of the
activities listed above. If your child attended any of these programs this summer, please contact the JEF Committee Chair, Ada Menaker, at Camp@ghcny.org .

These are fabulous and well-run programs; ask any child who has attended these! The Ramah Camps and USY summer programs are a valuable, enriching experience for our youth.

GHC has another fund, the Harry and Anna Singer Scholarship Fund for study in Israel. Funds from this fund may be available to students (high school or college) who spend a semester or a summer in Israel.  Please contact president@ghcny.org for more information.  

 

Julia B. Chazen Camp Fund

The Julia B. Chazen Camp Fund supports GHC member children attending Jewish non-profit overnight camps, other than Ramah camps, such as camps sponsored by other Jewish denominations, Zionist organizations, Young Judea, B’nai B’rith, JCC’s, Jewish Federations, etc. The Julia B. Chazen Camp Fund was established by GHC member Andrew Jagoda, in memory of his beloved grandmother, Julia B. Chazen. Andy’s grandmother loved to reminisce about her days at summer camp.  If you want to know if your overnight camp is covered by the Chazen Fund, please check the Foundation for Jewish Camp website, https://jewishcamp.org/one-happy-camper/find-a-camp-overnight/, for a comprehensive list of Jewish non-profit camps. If your child attended a Jewish overnight camp, please contact Ada Menaker at camp@ghcny.org as you may be eligible for a stipend.
