Come help us connect to your students!

College Connection is a program that provides care packages for many of Shearith Israel’s college-age students. This program allows our students who are away in college continue to feel a part of our community and family. Care packages are sent three times a year: High Holy Days, Chanukah and Passover, and are filled with holiday treats, notes from their families and letters from Shearith leadership.

If you are interested in sending a College Connection care package, please fill out the form below by August 31, 2017 to ensure your student receives their fall care package.

*Unfortunately, we cannot send care packages to students who are studying abroad. Please email Katie Venetsky if and when your child will be back at the college address you provide below.*

*Additionally, if you have a student in Graduate school and would like a care package to be sent to them, please reach out to Katie Venetsky.*

If you have any questions, please contact Katie Venetsky, Membership and Program Director at
