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.

Rabbi Sidney Shoham z’’l Scholarship

A year of study in Israel is an incredible opportunity; it is a year where you can focus your commitment and love for Torah and Eretz Yisrael. Mizrachi Canada understands that your dedication to these values for a full year ultimately strengthens our community. Those who decide to make the step towards Aliya to Israel are the Mizrachi community’s investment in the State of Israel and become our emissaries there, while those who return to Toronto return with a stronger sense of mission and understanding of the ideals that our community holds dear – Am Yisrael, Eretz Yisrael and Torat Yisrael. It is therefore paramount for Mizrachi Canada to help support our students taking part in programs, Yeshivot and Midrashot that instill these ideals. These goals guide us in our decision to offer financial support avenues for prospective students.
