Scholarships

Temple Sinai is honored to be able to support our members through a number of scholarship opportunities in both educational settings and summer experiences.

Allan and Helena Striker Scholarship Fund​

Temple Sinai is honored to offer a new scholarship, the Allan and Helena Striker Scholarship Fund. This is a needs-based scholarship generously funded for the purpose of supporting academically strong young men completing their senior year of high school and attending college the following year. The scholarship amount is $2,500.

Daniel Aaron Lipson Memorial IST Scholarship​

To honor the memory and legacy of Daniel Lipson, his family is establishing the Daniel Aaron Lipson Memorial IST Scholarship. Daniel was a young man of tremendous talent and passion and he dearly loved his Israel Study Tour (IST) experience. Knowing that even though Temple Sinai grants each graduated Confirmation student $1,000 to help offset the costs of the 5-week tour (1 week in Poland and 4 weeks in Israel), the overall cost of the trip can be prohibitive to families with limited financial resources.

In order to help more students enjoy the tremendous IST experience, the Daniel Aaron Lipson Memorial IST Scholarship will grant $1,000 to two Temple Sinai IST participants each year. The scholarship will be a needs-based award.

To Apply: The student’s family simply has to write a letter noting their need. Please send all applications to Lisa Thorner, Executive Director, at lisa@sinaidenver.org.

Alan Farber Memorial Camp Scholarship

Jewish summer camp of your choice! First time campers and needs based!

Temple Sinai members Lori and John Spanbauer generously established the Alan Farber Memorial Camp Scholarship Fund in loving memory of Lori’s brother Alan. This annual scholarship will help Temple Sinai students from qualified families attend a 2-week or 3-week Jewish sleep-away summer camp. The scholarship is also available for any mini-camp sessions for a camper’s first camp experience. The scholarship is available to all campers based on financial need that otherwise would prevent them from attending sleep-away camp.
