The Howard Richie Lazarus
Jewish Camping Scholarship Fund
In 1985, Eugene (z”l) and Annette Lazarus (z”l) generously established a perpetual endowment fund in memory of their son, Richie Lazarus (z”l). As an endowment the interest generated by the fund each year is used to help provide scholarship money to allow local children to attend Jewish camps (and will continue to do so for many years to come). 
The Greenberg - Lopkin Jewish
Camping Scholarship Fund
Created several years ago in honor of the wedding of Marv and Diane Greenberg’s daughter Nichole and her husband Jon Lopkin (who met at Jewish Summer Camp!), The Greenberg-Lopkin Jewish Camping Scholarship Fund has been providing scholarship money to help local Vermont children attend Jewish summer camps around the country. 
The Greenberg - Bratspis Israel
Youth Trip Scholarship Fund
Thanks to the generosity of Marv and Diane Greenberg a scholarship fund was created in 2011 at Ohavi Zedek, to help Jewish youth in our area pay for educational trips and programs to Israel. The Greenberg-Bratspis Israel Youth Trip Scholarship fund was established in honor of Marv and Diane’s daughter Renee and her husband Jeff Bratspis. 
The Ludwig Lewisohn Scholarship
The Ludwig Lewisohn Scholarship is awarded annually by Ohavi Zedek Synagogue for adults and teens who want to further their Jewish education at an advanced level, spend a summer infused with Yiddishkeit and experience Israel in-depth. To qualify, the applicant must:

Ludwig Lewisohn was an American-Jewish writer who lived in Burlington during the late 1930’s. His own Jewish learning did not begin until he was 40 years old. He pursued it avidly for the rest of his life until his death in 1955. To honor his love of Jewish learning, this scholarship is donated each year by Miriam and George Saiger, lifelong OZ members who currently reside out of state.
