College Connection

College Connection

College Connection is a program designed to keep our college students connected to their Jewish community here in Highland Park. We send 3-4 packages a year to our students, with packing help from our parents.

We also connect our students to resources about alternative winter/spring break programs, Birthright Israel, Jewish programs on campus, summer jobs and study abroad opportunities.

The program is free, endowed by the Beth El Sisterhood, although you need to register for it EVERY year.

Registration is ongoing throughout the year- please sign up and tell your friends!

Parents, we are always looking for volunteers to help pack our boxes!  Please contact Marah for more information on volunteering!
