Jerry Rabinowitz Memorial Scholarship Fund



Hi All,
I am  including a link to an article from today regarding demolition and future plans to rebuild and reimane the synagogue where the shootings took place.
Other news websites have carried this story, this was taken from the NYDaily news

Designs for a memorial to honor those killed in the attack were unveiled last month, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Eleven sculptures of open books — one for each victim — will be inscribed with personal stories about each worshipper, so visitors can learn more about them in “a peaceful environment for reflection.”

The sculptures represent the “Book of Life,” where the names of the righteous are written according to Jewish tradition.

Thanks, stay well and for those in the snow belt, STAY WARM

I hope you had a safe and healthy holiday season and I hope that continues throughout 2024.
I want to update you on the status of the Jerry Rabinowitz Memorial Scholarship Fund.

We have awarded four $500 scholarships and one $600 scholarship in Jerry's memory:
2019 Lisa Mayevsky
2020 Grace Quinn
2021 Irene Nguyen
2022 Adrian Nguyen
2023 Jonathan Mlawski
The Fund has a current balance of $10,331 thanks to additional contributions in 2023 from:
Warren Danziger
Ray Haines
Carol Hodes
Mark Hurwitz
Beverly Rabinowitz
Bill Rabinowitz
Ted and Vicki Hammer Rosenkrantz

The current balance will fund 17 years of scholarships for $600 in Jerry's memory.  We would like to increase the scholarship amount to keep pace with inflation, so I am asking you to join in our ongoing support of the Rabinowitz Scholarship Fund.  Additional contributions will be used to increase the amount of the scholarship and/or increase the number of years of the scholarship as determined by the Steering Committee of Laurie Feldman, Jake Rabinowitz (one of Jerry's nephews), and yours truly.

The Jerry Rabinowitz Memorial Scholarship Fund account is under the umbrella of the Jonathan Dayton PTSO, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization If you contribute, your check should be made payable to the Jonathan Dayton PTSO (139 Mountain Ave., Springfield NJ 07081) and in the memo line write "Rabinowitz Scholarship Fund."  When the check is in the mail please email me so I can alert the PTSO treasurer to expect a check.

Thank you and be well,

Jerry Rabinowitz Memorial from his High School Classmates

Here is the thank you note from the 2020 Awardee of the Jerry Rabinowitz Memorial Scholarship, Grace Quinn.
I would like to thank you for awarding me the Jerry Rabinowitz Memorial Scholarship. I admire Dr. Rabinowitz's immense sacrifice and love for others. I hope to exemplify the same courage, selflessness and kindness. Next year I plan to attend the University of Delaware's honors program, majoring in biology. I want to be a pediatrician. Doctor Rabinowitz's story is one I will never forget and hold dear to my heart in my pursuit of becoming a physician. This award means a lot to me. Thank you. 
Grace Quinn
