Approval of programs and levels of funding are based on consistency with the philosophy of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism and Beth El Synagogue. Approved programs must observe Kashrut, provide daily services, a daily program of Jewish education and Shabbat observance. A higher allocation of funds will be given to those programs affiliated with the Conservative Movement.
The following programs have been approved by the Beth El Scholarship Committee for Service Grants and Supplementary Aid for the summer of 2017:
Camp Ramah, Ramah Israel Seminars, USY: USY on Wheels, USY Israel Pilgrimage, Herzl Camp, Camp Sabra
Families are encouraged to apply to the Jewish Federation of Omaha for funding for other Jewish summer programs.
