Assigning values from one raster to another

Hi -

I have a raster showing locations of beaches along a reservoir that is currently all classified with a single integer value. I need to assign elevation values to my beach zones from a much more extensive underlying DEM. I could always convert the beach raster to a polygon, then clip the DEM to the polygon extent, but I would rather eliminate that step of the process. Is there a way to assign DEM values to match the extent of my beach raster without such a conversion?
