Jean Seifer Memorial Scholarship Fund to Support College-Bound Students
When his beloved wife, Jean, passed away, long-time Stephen Wise Free Synagogue member Sidney Seifer honored her memory by establishing a scholarship fund to recognize students who have enriched the life of our community. This year — the program's first — we expect to award one scholarship to a student who expects to enter college in 2016. To qualify, the recipients must have demonstrated personal integrity, intellectual curiosity, and a commitment to Judaism, Jewish life, and the Jewish community.APPLY NOW
