Benno Jacob // Bertha Pappenheim Scholarship Programme 

Commitment to an open and pluralistic Judaism is an essential pillar of our work. This is supported by the Benno-Jacob//Bertha-Pappenheim Scholarship Programme, which was made possible by the support of funds from the German Federal Foreign Office. One of the aims of this unique scholarship programme is to bring Jewish scholars to Germany and at the same time to increase the appeal of Jewish educational institutions in Germany. The Ernst Ludwig Ehrlich Studienwerk promotes this goal with its Scholarship and Visiting Scholar Programme and invites potential leaders of Jewish communities worldwide to study in Germany. The scholarship holders actively contribute to the religious life of the study programme.

Since its founding in October 2010, this scholarship programme has supported 23 students. Six of them have now completed their training and work as rabbis and cantors in the USA, Poland, Sweden and Germany.

The programme is made possible by the support of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and is funded by the German Federal Foreign Office. It is open for foreign students; German citizens can not apply. It is named after the founder of the Jewish Women’s League Bertha Pappenheim (1859-1936) and the rabbinic Bible expert Benno Jacob (1862-1945).

„Für Nachwuchs in den Aemtern muß freimütig gesorgt werden, denn von der Qualität dieser Arbeit hängt die Kraft und das Gedeihen und damit die Zukunft des deutschen Judentums ab.“

Bertha Pappenheim, 1916
