Jordan Liebhaber Scholarship Program

Announcing the Spring 2015 Jordan Liebhaber Scholarship Award Recipients

Jordan Liebhaber Scholarship Fund

This scholarship fund is created in loving memory of Jordan Washor Liebhaber
May 22, 1986 - March 29, 2013


The intention of this scholarship fund is to carry forward Jordanís 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.
