A Friendly, Participatory, Egalitarian Conservative Synagogue in Rockville, MD

College Outreach

Purpose: This committee helps maintain a connection between the Tikvat Israel community and its college students.

Activities (past and present): Sending holiday packages, care packages before final exams, and birthday wishes by email. Packages have included snacks and holiday-specific food and items (including hamantaschen and groggers).

Seeking new members: The committee needs individuals to assist with baking, assembling, and mailing packages and to help with minor administrative duties. The committee meets approximately three times during the academic year. Enthusiasm and a few hours of time are all that is required.
