College Planning through a Jewish Lens

This in-person event, originally planned for the evening of January 19th, has been postponed due to the COVID-19 Omicron variant. Stay tuned for a new date/time! 

AdultED panel discussion and social event
Temple Sinai Social Hall 

Parents of high school and/or early college students are invited to enliven a panel discussion about choosing and attending college “Jewishly.” Our panelists of local professionals in college admissions and Jewish campus life will make brief presentations, followed by a Q&A during which parents are encouraged to ask any and all questions regarding the intersection between Judaism and the college experience. 

This evening will be fun and informative, an opportunity to socialize and learn. Please join us, whether you are experienced with the college search or are just beginning to ponder it!
