Jordan Liebhaber Scholarship Program
This scholarship fund is created in loving memory of
Jordan Washor Liebhaber
The intention of this scholarship fund is to carry forward Jordan’s clear values and good works to help make the world a better, more caring place for our elders.
Jordan initially began his service work as a young teenager by volunteering with his dad as a hospice visitor at the Tippett Home in Needham, MA. After graduating from U of Miami he returned to his interest in helping elders as a patient and family advocate in nursing homes, quickly expanding his dedication by volunteering frequently in the Greater Boston Jewish Community at charity events. Jordan treasured his job as the Assistant Administrator at the Chelsea Jewish Home Assisted Living Residence. Jordan was committed to his family and loyal to his friends. He had many passions including music events, NE sports teams, cooking and enjoying good food, and staying fit. Jordan had an intuitive sense for what was important and manifested it in his humble, gentle and caring way. He was a joy and light to all who knew him.
Facts About the Scholarship Fund:
The board of the Jordan Liebhaber Scholarship Fund (JLSF) are proud to present the recipients of the second round of awards in this initial year of the fund. Five worthy young adults, committed to serving elders, are featured in the attached Announcement. Their use of the funds includes leadership training tuition, professional conference attendance, internship fees, and expenses for a pen pal project. In this first year of the JLSF, there have been a total of 10 awards, totaling $5,000 in disbursements. This has been made possible by the combined donations of over 200 generous contributors like you. The fund will continue to make awards in Jordan’s name for the full ten years of its planned duration.
We invite you to send the notice of the JLSF scholarship opportunity to potential candidates (between 18 & 30 years old, with proposal related to serving seniors). Here is the link for the Application for the Jordan Liebhaber Scholarship.
