College Connection



Are you a student or a young professional?

Keeping in touch with Judaism while balancing major life changes can be difficult, but Temple Beth Am is here to help!

Our College Connection program is designed to keep you passionate and curious about Judaism as you transition into adulthood.

Throughout the year,  we will compile and send three care packages stuffed with Jewish goodies, gifts, helpful resources and our congregational newsletter, the Commentator, to support your Jewish life on campus and post-graduation. Sign up now for our College Connection for the 2020–2021 school year using the online registration form below.

During the High Holy Days, Chanukah and Passover we will send the monthly Commentator and care packages containing munchies, gifts and information on Jewish programs.

Stay connected to the Temple Beth Am family as you become familiar with the global Jewish community.

We also will post information regarding college programs and optional educational trips to Israel from the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) amongst other organizations and programs.
