The Fund has created the Lyon Cohen Scholarship, a $5000 annual scholarship available to any Congregation Beth Israel member or family member who will be a junior or senior undergraduate student or a graduate student at any college or university in the fall of 2021.  The Scholarship is presented to that applicant who best exemplifies Lyon Cohen’s optimism, devotion to Judaism, and ethical grounding.  The scholarship, increased last year to $5000, is in its sixth year.  Past recipients of the Lyon Cohen Scholarship are Ian Falik, Dr. Kevin Kotamarti, and Danielle Golub.

In further tribute to Lyon, the Fund supports The Lyon Cohen Symposium on Business Ethics, which was successfully launched in 2015 and which has grown each year.  The Symposium and the community response reflect Lyon’s impeccable ethics and his Judaic values.

Congregation Beth Israel is delighted to highlight the Lyon Cohen Scholarship for its membership and encourages all eligible students to apply. Questions can be addressed to Liza Hirsch, 713-771-6221 x301.
