Leon & Selma Leach

We wanted our grandchildren to have the best Jewish education possible, and feel blessed to have such a wonderful Hebrew day school in Tidewater.

Our scholarship fund was the perfect gift for us to give from our hearts to our family and the Jewish community. It expresses the way we feel about education and Judaism. Established in honor of our eldest son, Dr. Frederick E. Leach, the trust supports scholarships for students of the Hebrew Academy of Tidewater. He was involved in many Jewish activities throughout his life. His studies in laboratory science were primary to him, so we dedicated the science lab in his memory.

Now, we are fortunate to have his son, our grandson, back in Tidewater. Our hope is that the Jewish community in Tidewater continues to thrive and flourish from the strength of its institutions.
