Youth Israel Trips

BHBE Israel Trip Scholarship for Youth

Our Next Generation Fund is coordinating with three of BHBE’s other specialized funds to provide scholarships for BHBE 8th through 12th graders participating in Israel programs sponsored by Jewish organizations. This $2,000 scholarship is available for all children of congregational members in good standing. We ask that you consider not requesting the scholarship if you do not really need it. This will enable us to maximize our support of those families who are in need.

BHBE also has additional funding available for those participating in a trip sponsored by the Conservative Movement, such as Ramah.  Please be in touch with Aaron Frankel,, for further information.

This scholarship will be paid directly to the organizers of the program. If your child does not go on the planned trip after payment has been made, any refund of trip fees received must be refunded by you to the Next Generation Fund up to the amount of the scholarship given by the funds.

In return for the scholarship we ask that you and your child provide us with the following:

  1. A few photos of your child taken on the trip to be put on display in our Next Generation Fund corner at BHBE along with photos provided by other trip participants and BHBE campers;
  2. A short essay describing their Israel experience; and
  3. A review of the trip including comments as to the strengths and weaknesses of the program.
