College Planning Through a Jewish Lens

Thursday, June 13, 2024 7 Sivan 5784

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Families with high school and/or college-aged children are invited to a panel discussion about choosing college “Jewishly.”  Panelists include local professionals in college admissions and in campus Jewish life, along with Jewish students currently navigating college themselves. This program is particularly timely given recent developments on college campuses, and their impact on Jewish students. Brief presentations will precede a Q&A session, during which teens and parents may ask questions regarding the intersection between Judaism and the college experience.  The evening will be informational and fun, an opportunity to socialize and learn.  A vegetarian dinner will be served.  Please join us, whether you are experienced with the college search or are just beginning to ponder it.
