Continued Connections (formerly College Connections)
CBE Sisterhood is continuing the connection to all of CBE’s high school graduates as they continue on their journey. Opportunities and adventures have expanded over the years to include a variety of Gap years, continued education, employment/internship, travel, to name a few.  Once known as College Connection, Continuing Connections will remain a 4 year program which includes a gift for Chanukah and other ways for Beth Emeth to be stay connected.  One opportunity includes identifying an Ambassador who would like to represent this young population and enhance these connections….please make your recommendations!!

Please send a name, best email address and if you’d like, your child’s next step to Marjie Burgasser.   If you have previously provided outreach information, please update it so we are sure we have current contact information. Watch for more details as they unfold!!  Congratulations to all the graduates!!!
