College Students

At Beth El, we like to keep in touch with our college kids as they embark on their next adventure. We send care packages over the High Holy Days and Passover,  and we get together with them when they are home over winter and summer breaks. Please contact Eadie to let her know how to reach your college students.

See below for some great resources for those in college and those who are choosing what college is right for them
