Arriving on campus for the first time can be very overwhelming and scary. Getting a package with some snacks and swag can be very comforting. It will also connect your child with the Jewish community on campus and give them a place to feel at home on a big campus.
Students do not need to be religious or need to have been involved in any Jewish youth groups or synagogue ever before, nor do they need to know or practice anything about Judaism. The students are from all backgrounds and they all welcome and support each other.
