Yehoshua (Jason) Friedberg Memorial Scholarship

The objective of this scholarship is to allow students in Montreal to study in Israel in a Hesder type Yeshiva. In order to be eligible the applicant must be enrolled in a Yeshiva Hesder type program which combines Torah study and service to the State of Israel. This philosophy reflects the ideals of Yehoshua Friedberg Z”L who was killed by PLO terrorists outside of Jerusalem. Yehoshua was a soldier and student whose life reflected the ideal balance of the two realities. The men and women who continue this ideal help to perpetuate his special memory.

Applications for scholarship consideration for the academic year 2022-2023 are now being accepted. The criteria requires registration in a Hesder oriented education facility for at least one year. Accompanying documents should include personal background, current academic affiliation, a letter of recommendation from the school you are now attending and an acceptance letter from the school in Israel. Requests should be addressed to: Yehoshua Friedberg Memorial Scholarship Fund c/o Congregation Beth Tikvah 136 Westpark Dollard des Ormeaux, QC H9A 2K2
