American Jewish University

The Jeff Astor Foundation donated a beautiful bench and plaque in Jeff’s memory at Brandeis- Bardin, part of the American Jewish University. The bench is a favorite relaxation place for both campers and visitors alike.

The JAF established and continues to fund an annual scholarship to the Brandeis Collegiate Institute (BCI), known today as the Marilyn and Sigi Ziering Brandeis Collegiate Institute. ZBCI is an intensive experience in Jewish learning, culture and community offered to young adults ages 18 to 26.

The Brandeis-Bardin Institute in Simi Valley is home to Camp Alonim, the Ziering Brandeis Collegiate Institute and a conference and events center.
