The JVS Emerging Leaders is a group of next generation leaders who support JVS SoCal’s mission through volunteering, fundraising and events. We have formed a team to support the JVS Scholarship Program and the life-changing work they do to help Jewish Scholars achieve their academic dreams.

Our goal is to raise at least $2,200 to provide a Jewish student in need with financial assistance for their education.

On Saturday, March 7, 2020, we will be walking with Team Emerging Leaders (EL) JVS at the 2020 LA BIG 5K at Dodger Stadium. Come join us on the walk and/or donate to support this great cause. Every dollar counts! Last year alone, the JVS Scholarship program awarded $808,700 to 256 students.

With your help, we can support students like Ronit F., who received a JVS Scholarship last year. Ronit is a first-generation refugee from Iran who escaped religious persecution. After coming to the U.S., Ronit learned English, began tutoring and mentoring other students and graduated with Summa Cum Laude Honors from USC. She is currently pursuing a career as a physician. Ronit said that thanks to her scholarship, “I was able to focus on my classes and push myself even harder because I know that there are people that believe in me and want me to succeed.”
