Jewish Education Loan Fund

Jewish students living in the Palm Beaches can turn to Jewish Education Loan Fund for help accessing interest-free, need-based loans to supplement their financial resources, and give them the opportunity to attend full-time accredited post-secondary educational programs.

These are need-based loans to help bridge the gap between a student’s total financial resources and the cost of attending school.

Application period now open through April 30.

Jewish Overnight Camp

There are few more transformative opportunities for a young person than a summer camp experience. Camp allows kids to learn new interests like water skiing and archery, gain independence and confidence, and create enduring friendships – all while living Jewish values and experiencing the importance of community. Jewish children in Federation’s service area (Boynton Beach north through Vero Beach) are eligible to receive financial need-based scholarships to attend approved Jewish overnight summer camps across the country. Please check the Foundation for Jewish Camp’s approved list of programs to see if your camp is eligible for a scholarship.
