Maryland Hillel strives to enhance the lives of Jewish students at the University of Maryland so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world. Hillel actively seeks to engage students on their own terms and to provide them with Jewish opportunities that are meaningful and appealing to them. Students are empowered to take responsibility for their Jewish identity, whether they wish to participate in a community service project, express themselves artistically, participate in a social event, engage in informal Jewish learning or attend religious services. Any student may participate with Hillel and no membership is required. Hillel is committed to a pluralistic vision of Judaism that embraces all movements.
