The Lewis Edgers Scholarship helps provide 214 teens the opportunity to participate in the BJE March of the Living program.
Lewis Edgers was a Los Angeles business man who co-founded Crown Plastics Inc. in the 1970s. He was married to Ronna Edgers and raised two daughters in the San Fernando Valley. After a visit to Israel in 1975, Lewis became extremely passionate about his support of the Jewish state. He helped raise money for the LA Jewish Federation and other causes and upon his death, in 1984, the Lewis Edgers Israel Program Fund was seeded at the Bureau of Jewish Education by his wife, Ronna. And in her death, in 2001, the fund has been continued.
It is the hope of the family that the memory of their parents vision will encourage teens to participate in The March for The Living program and will ignite a passion in them for the importance of Jewish continuity and a deeper understanding and love for the State of Israel. These were important values to Lewis and Ronna Edgers.
