Jewish Disabilities Awareness and Inclusion Month

Towson Hillel's interview series gives insight into steps the Jewish community can take to make our spaces more accessible for everyone.

We are so proud of Ritual Chair Jenna Heisman and Student President Rachel Kamel, with the assistance and consultation of TU Hillel Governance Chair & Secretary Dr. Sheryl Cooper, for putting together an incredible interview series for Jewish Disabilities Awareness and Inclusion Month (JDAIM).

We hope these conversations give insight into steps the Jewish community can take to make our spaces more accessible for everyone. We hope you watch and maybe learn a thing or two about inclusion!

Annual Report, Aug 2020

This year, Towson University Hillel and the rest of the world experienced a time like no other. Our strongest year on campus was cut short with our transition to virtual programming on March 11th, two days before Spring break, creating a metamorphosis of face to face programs, student engagements and transformative experiences into a 21st century virtual reality.
