The Rabbi Erwin Schild Student Scholarship Fund was generously established at the Hebrew University in 2023 by Julie Di Lorenzo as a tribute to Rabbi Schild. The Rabbi is a highly respected member of the Clergy, an accomplished author, a stalwart community leader, and a dear personal friend of Ms. Di Lorenzo.
Rabbi Schild, who was ordained in 1947 after fleeing Nazi Germany, spent 42 years serving at Toronto’s Adath Israel Synagogue. Upon his retirement in 1989, he was named Rabbi Emeritus. He is renowned for his efforts to promote interfaith harmony and improve Christian-Jewish relations both locally and globally, and is admired for his charitable nature, dedication to multiculturalism, and positive interfaith relations.
As Rabbi Schild is passionate about Israel and Jewish Studies, this meaningful scholarship will annually award up to CDN $3,500 to a deserving Canadian student, with a preference for those studying Judaic Studies at The Hebrew University in Jerusalem, though other fields of study will also be considered. Applicants may apply for the 2024-2025 school year.
