College Connection

Keeping our college kids connected

At Congregation Or Atid, our goal is to continue to engage with our youth once they leave the nest and go off to college. We want our students to know that Or Atid provides a place for them to turn and return to.  

What we do

Or Atid parents of college-age children will be invited to gather during the year to assemble student packages. Parents can also share their children's college-age experiences and concerns so we can support each other!

Packages sent will have a message from the Rabbi and may include synagogue news, novelties, timely articles, Jewish humor and special treats with a holiday theme. Packages are sent for Rosh Hashanah, Chanukah and Passover.  Any family who does not wish to send a package is asked to provide their college student's email so that a newsletter can be emailed to them for these holidays.

A fun, relaxed gathering will be planned during a typical college vacation break (most likely January) for our students to re-connect with their old classmates and Or Atid friends.  

We'll also have a College Connection Directory with our students' contact info so they can keep in touch with each other - and for our community to stay in touch with them.

(For our High School graduates, an Or Atid celebration will be planned for the Spring to show them our appreciation and support for the next phase in their lives).

How to sign up

Submit your student's college address and e-mail by filling out this form . You will be asked to re-confirm your child’s address and e-mail annually.  If your student is studying abroad, we'll make sure to keep in touch by email.  

$36 per student helps to defray the cost of materials and shipping and is greatly appreciated. Additional donations are always welcome. Donations should be sent to the synagogue office, checks payable to Congregation Or Atid memo line: College Connection.
