Megan Gendelman, graduating eighth grader at Milwaukee Jewish Day School, has been named a candidate for the Armin K. Taus Memorial Scholarship. The candidacy was announced at the MJDS honors assembly in June.
The honor is given to one exceptional student each year, who actually receives the scholarship four years later upon high school graduation and college enrollment. Megan will be attending Nicolet High School beginning this autumn.
Receiving the scholarship this year at the Whitefish Bay High School honors program was senior Zev Woskoff who will be attending the University of Pittsburgh in the fall.
Congregation Cnesses Israel in Green Bay has given its JoAnn Glickman Award to religious school student Amaiah Goldman, according to the synagogue’s July bulletin.
In her announcement of the award, Rabbi Shaina Bachrach wrote that Goldman has regularly attended the Saturday morning services, has been a “gabbai-in-training,” likes to write and is “an outstanding role model for our younger students.”
Glickman was a survivor of the Kristallnacht pre-World War II pogrom in Nazi Germany who came to Green Bay and taught at the synagogue. According to Bachrach, after Glickman’s death, some of her students created the annual award.
