  3. Challah For Hunger

    Challah for Hunger is a non-profit national organization founded by Eli Winkelman at Scripps College in 2004. Challah for Hunger’s mission is to “bring people together to bake and sell challah in an effort to raise money and awareness for social justice causes.” Challah for Hunger is currently run by thousands of Jewish students across 78 campuses in the US., Canada, Australia, and England! The Towson University Challah for Hunger Chapter was founded in Fall 2013. The Towson University Chapter is dedicated to making a difference by donating to food justice organizations such as MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger Relief and the Maryland Food Bank. We also partner with organizations on Towson’s campus to contribute to philanthropies that are important to our fellow Tigers!

  5. Towson Hillel Engagement Interns

    The Towson Hillel Engagement Intern program is designed to dramatically enhance Jewish life on campus. Each campus employs a cohort of students with broad social networks to build relationships with uninvolved Jewish students over the course of a year.

    Each Intern is charged with building relationships with uninvolved Jewish students on campus. Serving as a resource to meaningful opportunities, the Engagement Intern strives to advance Jewish values in the context of their relationships.

    The Engagement Intern strives to understand students’ interests, passions, and aspirations – and connect them to opportunities that they may find meaningful and engaging.

    Each Intern is given a budget to plan initiatives that enable them to meet uninvolved Jewish students and follow-up with them in an authentic, comfortable, and open way. Initiatives have the dual purpose of attracting uninvolved students and advancing Jewish values.
    The Engagement Intern provides on-going relationship-building, especially as follow-up to immersive and meaningful experiences such as Taglit-Birthright Israel trips, Alternative Break trips, etc.
    For more information on how to become an Engagement Intern, contact Scott today.
