Our students write...
"I want to thank Keren Aynor for their support and generosity.  Receiving a scholarship  is incredibly helpful with all the expenses I have. I feel it has given me the extra motivation I need to continue my studies and  not give up.  You have helped me make a dream come true".
O.Z., Health Management Studies, Peres Academic Institute.

"Receiving a scholarship has really helped me this year.  It allows me to concentrate more on my studies and not worry so much about all the family expenses.  I have two young children and it's important for me to study. Knowing Keren Aynor believes in me is great.  It's like I have someone to listen if I need.  Thank you!"
C, First year Sciences:  Biology and Chemistry, Open University.

"I have been receiving a scholarship from Keren Aynor for a few years now.  Thank you for believing I can do this!  I feel I have become a role model for my children.  It's a source of pride for me and my family that I'm becoming an academic".
R. A., Masters of Social Work, Hebrew University.
Keren Hanan Aynor is launching a new " Give Back to the Community Education Fund". Our Alumni can now help support newer students through online monthly payments as they work towards a dream of receiving academic degrees.  Please join them by matching their donation.  Together we can provide  more students with the chance to study and become leaders in their community and Israeli society as a whole.

Celebrating a birthday, anniversary, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, graduation or other special occasion?  Consider giving the gift of education in honour of a relative or dear friend to a talented and highly motivated Ethiopian Israeli student.  
For just $84/month for twelve months, you can donate a scholarship to help support one student reach their dreams of achieving an academic degree! Contact  Amy at office@kerenaynor.org.il for more details or click now on the link below.
