Breaking down barriers to Zionist education
HAROLD SLOTNICK (1942 - 2020) was one of two brothers born to immigrant parents, Abraham and Reba, in Philadelphia. He spent his life in the city, serving in the U.S. army and developing a long-time career in real estate. A lifelong bachelor, he was also a passionate ballroom dancer. Fluent in his parents' Yiddish, Harold valued the time he spent in Israel and regularly donated to Jewish causes.
To continue his legacy, the Harold Slotnick Endowed Scholarship was established by his estate as a needs-based scholarship fund that provides $1,000 to young American Jewish women interested in attending the Alexander Muss High School in Israel. This endowment gift to Jewish National Fund left in Harold Slotnick's will, supports his mission of bolstering a stronger connection to one's Jewish identity and to Israel through education.
Throughout his life, Slotnick was a passionate Zionist and believed a strong Jewish education was the most effective way to ensure the future of the community. With his passion for Jewish continuity and his desire to create a legacy, the Harold Slotnick Endowed Scholarship will carry on his commitment and help strengthen young women's relationships with their homeland and an understanding of their cultural history. Slotnick believed that Jewish National Fund is uniquely positioned to serve both of those functions at once through Alexander Muss High School in Israel.
Jewish National Fund-USA will distribute the scholarship to young women interested in studying at Alexander Muss High School in Israel whose families demonstrate financial need.
Young women who are selected to receive the scholarship will learn about Harold's life and legacy and communicate with his family sharing their own stories and appreciation. This scholarship fund will keep Harold's love of Zionist education alive for years to come and will enable more high school students facing financial barriers to attend this life-changing program.
