The leadership of our Jewish Federation feels that a religious education can have a profoundly positive impact on our children and their Jewish identity. We would like to help make religious school a reality for your child by offering need-based scholarship assistance for those in Sarasota and Manatee counties. This scholarship is intended to be combined with your own funding as well as funding from other sources, such as your synagogue.
