Student Care Package Connection (formerly College Connection)

Send your student a taste of TBE for the holidays.

Have a son or daughter going away to college or boarding school in the fall — for the first time or another year? Show them some love at the Jewish holidays by signing them up for Student Care Package Connection to get delicious and festive holiday care packages lovingly assembled by TBE parents.

It’s fun to receive holiday treats and well wishes from the clergy. Students tell us that sharing their packages is a great way to introduce friends to their Jewish heritage. Parents tell us they enjoy the company of other parents as they prepare the care packages.

"This is our second year participating in the program and my daughter is thrilled. Kimmie feels a strong commitment to faith and our temple so your packages are meaningful and help to make the holidays special while she's away from home. As a matter of fact, she calls me right away after receiving her little bundle and loves to show her friends (she tells me that TBE sends better stuff than the other temples!)" Thank you for all your thought and planning. -Pam Remis
