LA Federation Receives Largest Gift Ever

A multi-million dollar gift from community leader Geri Brawerman on behalf of herself and her late husband Richard – the largest gift in the history of The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles – will make it possible for the Federation to develop and sustain a talent pool of engaged Jewish young leaders in perpetuity. A select group of high school seniors will be chosen as Brawerman Fellows and each receive a $10,000 annual college scholarship.

Brawerman Fellows will be chosen based upon demonstrating academic strength, financial need and a commitment to leadership, community service and Jewish engagement. They will participate in a program that builds leadership skills and deepens their connection to Jewish life.

Additional information on The Geri and Richard Brawerman Leadership Institute can be found here.

The application deadline for this year’s Brawerman Fellowships is May 11, 2012.
