RIVKIN CAMP SCHOLARSHIP
As parents of former campers as well as having worked on staff at Camp Harlam and Kutz Camp (Cantor and Rabbi respectively) we have seen the benefits of Jewish summer camp firsthand. However, the process of finding the right camp for your child can be daunting, as can its potential cost.
That’s why it’s with great excitement we announce that the Rivkin family has created and funded an endowment at Monmouth Reform Temple to help make it possible for your children to attend one of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) camps, HarlamKutzSci TechSix Point Sports, and Six Points Creative Arts
 
The endowment will enable scholarships up to 50% of the cost of a camp session. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship for your child(ren), please fill out the attached application form and return it to Stu Tuchband by December 15th. He has a box in our office or you can also email it to him as an attachment stuchband@comcast.net.
 
SOCIAL ACTION PROJECTS
Each year MRT members have been extremely generous in sponsoring families in need during the holiday season! These include adults (who may be in shelters, group homes or homeless) and families through The Center in Asbury Park, and families from FRA (Family Resource Associates) which serves babies and children with special needs. Any help is appreciated and many times volunteers help with part of a family’s needs or even gift cards. 
Last year alone MRT sponsored 85 adults in need from The Center and about 15 families of various sizes! We are a very caring community!
To volunteer or for more information, please email Cheryl Gaudette at cbgaudette@gmail.com or call or text at 908-489-0055.
Thanks!!!!
