Chaim Maizel Scholarships in Hebrew Studies

Established in 2000 by Senator E. Leo Kolber, B.A. 1949, B.C.L. 1952 and Sandra Maizel Kolber, C.M., B.A. 1955. A brilliant Hebrew scholar and expert in Middle East Affairs, Chaim Maizel enriched the lives of Montrealers by serving numerous years as President of the Hebrew Cultural Organization. He co-founded Camp Massad where Jewish youth who were students of Hebrew could live their daily lives in Hebrew each summer, thus giving them practical knowledge of the working language and a love of their heritage. Two scholarships will be awarded annually to outstanding undergraduate students for academic excellence in the study of Hebrew Language and/or Literature. These scholarships will be awarded by the Faculty of Arts Scholarships Committee on the recommendation of the Chair of the Department of Jewish Studies.

Value: $2,000 each.
