Anna and David Levy Scholarship Fund

In 2002, Miriam and Marc Sommer of Chicago set up the Anna and David Levy Scholarship Fund at She’arim. The scholarship is for a partial tuition for one student to learn for one year, and was setup in memory of Miriam’s maternal grandparents.

Miriam Sommer said that her grandparents Anna and David Levy were warm and loving people who always had an affinity for learning and chesed. They had a home that was always open to everyone.

“I remember my grandmother as being a true aishet chayil,” Miriam said. “We wanted to remember my grandparents in a way that would be fitting to their lives and She’arim seemed the perfect match. It’s not only a school to further one’s learning, but also a place to develop one’s character with true Torah midot (character traits).”

The Sommers are long time friends of Rabbi and Rebbetzin Pavlov, and Rebbetzin Pavlov is the Sommers’ shadchan (matchmaker). Miriam said she and her husband both believe in and support what the Pavlovs are accomplishing at She’arim.

“We always knew that whatever Rebbetzin Pavlov would turn her talents toward, would not only be a huge success, but would make an impact on the Jewish community,” Miriam said.  

Naomi Zeiger Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Naomi Zeiger Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in memory of Naomi Zeiger, a baalat chesed who was beloved by all and who helped a myriad of people rediscover their Jewish roots. The fund was established by Naomi’s friend, Janis Fine, as an expression of Naomi’s love of her fellow Jews and Torah.

This fund will provide the financial opportunity to learn at She’arim to those Jewish women who desire to connect more deeply to their Jewish roots.

A typical beneficiary will be a current student who wants to extend her time at She'arim and who is not eligible for other scholarships  

This scholarship is funded with the donations, in lieu of payment, given by couples whom Janis has helped in the process of the labor and delivery of their babies as their doula.
