MARvelous Education Fund

If you are planning to pursue higher education and are looking for ways to cover the cost, the JCC’s MARvelous Education Fund can help. The fund will award a $5,000 scholarship to one recipient and is open to all JCC members and staff. Preference is given to JCC involvement, academic achievement and financial need.

The fund was established by Dan and Amy Farsht, and Steve and Stephanie Farsht to honor their grandmother, Marion Farsht, and great aunts, Anita Marx and Rose Shapiro.

Applications are now being accepted and are due on Friday, March 16, 2018. Applications available online and at the JCC Front Desk.







We are proud to announce that the 2017 recipient of the MARvelous Scholarship was Sam Altshuler. Sam graduated from Sibley High School with a 4.24 GPA and is now headed to Rensselear Polytechnic Institute (RPI), where he will study Molecular Biology. Sam’s childhood was filled with JCC experiences – a participant in our Children’s Theater Program, a counselor at Camp Butwin and as a member of our competitive swim team where he was a wonderful role model for his younger team members.






“2017 brought us the greatest pool of candidates we have seen since launching this
scholarship fund more than 10 years ago, and Sam stood out as being both an exceptional
student and young adult. We are thrilled to award Sam with this opportunity and recognition.”
