Why an Israel scholarship to honor Mrs. Paletz?
Annette had a passion for Israel and was the first person from Minnesota to participate in the semester-long journey to Israel as part of the Alexander Muss High School in Israel program back in 1976 when she was 17 years old. Knowing that this experience had a profound effect on Annette’s life, it was only fitting to create the Annette Paletz Memorial Scholarship Fund for Alexander Muss High School in Israel, a fund that will help Jewish Minnesota teens experience life in Israel.
The fund is available to receive tax-deductible tributes and contributions through the Jewish Community Foundation. If you’d like to make a tax-deductible gift to the Annette Paletz Fund, you can send a check to the Jewish Community Foundation, Minneapolis Jewish Federation, 111 Cheshire Ln, Suite 50, Minnetonka, MN 55305.
