Scholarship Guidelines

Our Jewish journeys take us in various directions throughout the year, both in the TI community with our wide variety of options to live Jewishly—and venturing out into the broader Jewish community for programs, events, trips, and summer experiences.  We strive to make these meaningful experiences more affordable through need-based scholarships. These grants are a tangible manifestation of our policy that financial means should not impact an individual’s ability to participate. Temple Isaiah encourages our community members to personalize their Jewish journeys, and we value the opportunity to provide support as you turn your passions into action!
