UMBC Hillel has a lot to offer – here are the top five reasons to come hang with Hillel!
5. Free FoodLet’s be honest, if you’re in college then this is one of your top priorities. And between Aliza Silverman, our Hillel Engagement Associate and "hired Jewish mother", there is plenty of free food, both at our free weekly Shabbat dinners and the rest of the week! The office is always stocked with snacks, and students can make requests. Beyond these options, there are opportunities to get lunch with Hillel staff and leadership, so you can get food and company!

UMBC Hillel hosts a variety of different events throughout the semester, and we'd love to work with you to create the events you want to us! Examples include costume Shabbat, game night, and movie with discussion. Let us know what you’re interested in and we can work with you to make it happen! Contact Aliza, Rabbi Jeremy, or the student leadership with your ideas.
