Rabbi Michael S. Stroh

The Michael S. Stroh Scholarship Fund

The Rabbi Michael S. Stroh Scholarship was established to encourage young Reform Jews to spend an extended period of time in Israel under Reform auspices.

A maximum of $1,000.00 per year per individual is  awarded to worthy candidates who agree to work on behalf of Israel and Reform Zionism on their return, in their home congregation if possible. Recipients would get an automatic $250 with a possibility of an increased amount.

The criteria for approval would be:  spend a minimum of 6 months in Israel, in a secondary school or above program under the auspices of the Reform Movement.

About the Scholarship

Rabbi Michael S. Stroh, Rabbi Emeritus of Temple Har Zion in Thornhill, Ontario, was the first president of KADIMA (the former name of ARZA Canada) and of the International Federation of Reform Zionists, ARZENU. The Stroh Scholarship was established in his honour in 1984.

Candidates for the Stroh Scholarship should download the application form here and either return it by e-mail it or mail to:

ARZA Canada
3845 Bathurst Street, Suite 301,
Toronto, ON
M3H 3N2

They should include proof of acceptance in a semester or year-long study program operating under the auspices of the Reform Movement. They should also include in their letter of application what they hope to gain from this experience and how they plan to share their experiences with the Canadian Reform community upon their return.

IMPJ Food Drive

Sharing the light of Hanukkah
Food insecurity is at an all-time high in Israel. You can minimize the gaps in Israeli society and promote social justice by donating now to distribute food packages to those in need. The Keren b'Kavod department of IMPJ runs a holiday food drive and we can help.
Early donations will ensure that more families receive these essential food packages.

The Israel Movement for Reform and Progressive Judaism (IMPJ) distributes holiday food packages to all sectors of Israeli society, regardless of religion or status.
The need is especially great this winter, with loss of employment and reduction in social programs due to the Coronavirus.
CDN $72 provides a basket of food and vouchers for toys and books for struggling families of all denominations.

Your donation matters. Give now.
