College Connection

College Connections 


Etz Chaim College Connection lets undergraduate college and graduate school students know that we are thinking about them, by sending Jewish holiday "care packages". College Connection celebrates Rosh Hashanah, Chanukah and Passover with your college student! All we need is a current mailing address for your college/graduate school student!


Please email the following information to [email protected]:

  1. Student name, college mailing address(es) for packages and/or US postal and email address
  2. Year in school/graduation date
  3. Parent's names and email address

It is important for us to have an updated list every year, therefore we purge the list from the previous year. Please send an email with your student's current mailing address to keep them on the list (even if it has not changed from last year). This is necessary so that we do not have the expense of sending packages to potentially incorrect addresses. Please also let us know if you student has graduated and we will take them off of our list!
