Webcast: L.A.‘s young Iranian Jews benefit from JVS’s scholarships


The Los Angeles based Jewish Vocational Services (JVS) since 1930 been providing programs and services to various individuals who have been financially struggling. These services include efforts to help countless folks become self-sufficient and even offered scholarships to college students in need who show potential. Last month I attended the JVS’s Scholarship awards night and was surprised to find that a majority of the 100+ scholarship recipients this year were local young Iranian Jews.

JVS’s Scholarship Manager, Cathy Kersh Millstein, spoke with me after the awards night held at Sinai Temple in West Los Angeles about JVS’s need to have more Iranian American Jewish donors for their scholarship program. Even though some financially struggling Iranian Jews in the community benefits from these scholarships, it seems as if those who may be well off have not been exposed to the JVS’s work.
