The Helyn B. Reich Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 1995 in memory of Helyn B. Reich, wife of founding AZM President Seymour D. Reich. Reich scholarships are awarded each fall and spring to a limited number of American students who have chosen to study at one of several designated Israeli universities or post-college long-term programs in Israel. The scholarship seeks to recognize candidates who have demonstrated academic excellence, pro-Israel activity in their personal lives, and a dedicated commitment to future involvement with the Jewish and Zionist community in the United States.
The American Zionist Movement is pleased to announce the winners of the Spring 2021 Helyn B. Reich Memorial Scholarship. The recipients are accomplished young Americans Zionists dedicated to AZM’s mission, who are thrilled to be spending the next year living and immersing themselves in Israel.
Noah Ente, originally from Massachusetts, is a student at University of Michigan where he has been very active in his Hillel. He has traveled to Israel with Birthright Israel, Alexander Muss High School in Israel and the Diller Teen Fellowship. Noah says, “In the future, I plan to continue to be an outspoken Zionist.” Participating in Tel Aviv University International – Spring Semester Abroad Program, Noah says, “While the coronavirus pandemic will surely bring changes from what a “normal” semester abroad in Tel Aviv might look like, I am confident that the experience of learning and living in Israel as a young adult will give me a deeper understanding of Israeli politics, business, science, art, music, food and more.”
