About T'rumah Financial Aid (see below for application form)

ALEPH is committed to making our programs financially accessible. In doing so, we try to balance our ability to meet individual requests with our ability to spread our resources among as many participants as possible. Please support us in this endeavor by considering your request for financial aid carefully.

Who can apply for financial aid?

Financial aid is need-based and can be requested for any ALEPH program or retreat that states assistance is available. Applicants must be approved for program participation before receiving financial aid. If the applicant is a current student, the student must be in good standing and whose evaluations show good progress. Applicants with outstanding balances due to any ALEPH program (with the exception of pre-approved payment plans) are not eligible for financial aid.

Payment Plan

Before applying for financial aid, please consider that ALEPH is willing to arrange for payment plans. Given that option, perhaps you can arrange for one to pay the full cost. For information about payment plans, please contact AOP's Administrator, Ming Shem Lu, at 215-247-9700 x21 or at
