Balk Family Memorial Camp Scholarship Fund

Is There a Youth in Your Life in Need of a Bit of Inspiration on Their Jewish Journey?

The Balk Family Memorial Camp Scholarship Fund can help. The scholarship fund perpetuates the memory and ideals of Beth David members Sheldon and Melvina Balk and their sons, Richard and David Balk and is intended to capture and light the spirit of Judaism in our youth, especially those who may seem apathetic about Jewish activities.

Nominations for summer 2020 resident camp scholarships are being accepted now. Please email Chuck Taubman for additional information and to learn how to submit a nomination (the due date is January 17, 2020).

Please remember these are not merit-based scholarships. We offer substantial aid, not based on academic results or activities, but, rather, to awaken a student’s Jewish identity. We give preference to Beth David first time campers. The amount we disburse depends upon donations to the Fund and current interest, but this past summer, aided by our scholarships, three Beth David students attended Camp Ramah camps.
