HOD Lodge Galil creates Nat Levy scholarship
Houston’s Hebrew Order of David Lodge Galil has begun a scholarship fund in memory of Nat Levy, who was HOD Lodge Galil’s elder statesman. This scholarship will add tremendous value to the fledgling lodge, which started in Houston in November 2015.
Nat Levy, who earned the special title of “Worthy Brother,” would regularly educate members about the traditions and history of the fraternity. He was greatly respected by members throughout the world – with lodges in the U.S., Canada, the UK, Israel and South Africa.
Nat Levy entered the Hebrew Order of David Jewish men’s fraternity many years ago, joining the board of the Otto Warburg Lodge in Pretoria, South Africa, in 1963.
The Nat Levy Scholarship fund is held at the Houston Jewish Community Foundation. The Levy family made a generous donation to the fund to start it. HOD Lodge Galil added to the scholarship from its own Tikkun Olam charity fund.
A special committee has been set up to determine the rules for giving scholarships. To make donations to the Nat Levy Scholarship Fund, go to HOD Lodge Galil at
