College Outreach

The College Outreach program is designed to keep our college students connected to Temple Beth Or and their Jewish k’hilah (community) back home. We assemble and mail three holiday packages for our members’ children who are living away from home while attending college. Students can also receive our twice-monthly ORbits email newsletter and notices of trips and events that may be of interest to them.

Typically, we send packages for:

  • The High Holidays
  • Hanukkah
  • Purim and Passover

All the packages include small gifts and treats that reflect each holiday. We send a Jewish calendar in the fall and a variety of fun handouts or a message from the Rabbi with each package.

The College Outreach program is funded completely through donations; we do not receive money from the Temple. We ask that families with students enrolled on the program make an annual donation (about $40) to cover the costs of gifts and postage.

If you are a member with a child in college, or are interested in helping with outreach to our college students, contact us at
