College-age students are a significant part of our Shaare Emeth community. While college often takes our students far from home, they remain important members of our community. Perhaps more than at any other point in their lives, the college years are a time when people search for meaning and make critical decisions which impact the rest of their lives. Shaare Emeth believes we have a responsibility to help our students stay connected to the Jewish community, support their continued Jewish identity development, and remind them that we care about them no matter where they live.
Shaare Emeth’s College Connection keeps college age students connected to Shaare Emeth and provides them with opportunities to continue their Jewish journeys during this critical period in their lives. Some of the ways we connect include:
Clergy campus visits and other on-campus opportunities which connect students with others from Shaare Emeth
Gatherings for students while they are home during breaks
Care packages during the holidays to show our college students we’re thinking of them
Resource to help our students individually as they seek to build a Jewish life on campus
If you have any questions, please free to contact Rabbi Jonah Zinn.
We want to include as many Shaare Emeth college students as possible in this program. Use this online form to give us your contact information so we can stay in touch with you via email and send you care packages for the holidays!
