Why Len & Judy created this scholarship

"It is important that we raise up the next generation of potential leaders for our future Jewish community and I believe the Jewish summer camp experience is an integral part of that process. A Jewish overnight camp is a place to learn new skills, have fun, and meet new friends with whom you share your ideas about Judaism and life. Jewish summer camp was a place that taught me to become a proud and committed Jew and that is my hope for recipients of our scholarship fund. This year I will be expanding the program to include two new, special scholarships: one specifically in honor of my wife, Judy, of blessed memory, who passed last year, and one reserved for a teen that wants to attend Camp Tel Yehudah, which is the summer camp I attended in my youth."

- Len Elikan
