Sharon Fakheri is a student at Ner Israel Rabbinical College where he maintains a 4.0 GPA.  His passion for Jewish studies is evident.  Sharon grew up in Iran where furthering his Jewish Education was not a possibility.  In order to obtain the education he wanted, Sharon left his family and moved to the United States.  After receiving news that Sharon was awarded with a scholarship, he wrote, “The scholarship that Central Scholarship has provided for me has been a tremendous help.  I look forward to setting more goals and achieving more.  This scholarship will help me give back to the community in ways that I have been waiting and hoping to do.”
