For Aitz Chaim’s high school students, choosing a college is a big decision, from finding the right school, to getting into their dream school, to financial aid.

Let the RJ help!

Reform Judaism, the world’s largest circulated Jewish magazine (and a URJ publication free to members of affiliated congregations), has partnered with Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, in creating The RJ Insider’s Guide to College Life. This guide (you can also click on the cover to start reading) is a great place to begin or further your students’ search for the right college and help answer some of those big questions. Help your students learn about schools with the 60 largest Jewish communities, top 20 by percentage of Jews, active local Reform/Egalitarian services, Jewish studies majors and so much more, including:

  • Getting In: What the Experts Say
  • How to Grow as a Jew, Your Way
  • Financial Aid: Secrets of Success

The Guide is available both digitally, at and in print, in the center section of Reform Judaism magazine’s Fall 2012 edition, reaching homes now.

With our warmest wishes for a new year filled with sweetness,
