Will you help us continue to grow?!

We have officially opened our revolutionary, 2,500-square-foot Towson Commons space and we can’t wait to see you there soon!

We are fortunate to be able to partner with The Associated Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore, in a five-year lease at Towson Commons to accommodate, grow and to provide our students with a warm, welcoming meeting place to learn and socialize.


At the Towson University Hillel, our goal is to provide a vibrant Jewish Community and an infrastructure that shapes the next generation of Jewish leaders. Through a variety of campus and community based programs, Hillel engages students in ways they feel most comfortable expressing their Judaism, while embarking on their college journey at Towson University. Our mission is to enrich the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world.

TU is Maryland’s fastest-growing university for a reason.

We create extraordinary opportunities and outcomes for our students, our community and our region.

2021-22 Annual Report

What an exceptional year for Towson University Hillel!

We returned to campus at the beginning of the school year wearing masks with our largest ever engagement of freshman and sophomores! Those sophomores sure celebrated being in person for the first time!

Starting with our largest welcome-back bagel brunch ever, our engagement and student participation soared. With an exceptional Student Leadership Executive Board team and phenomenal staff to support their vision and ideas, our program is on record to hit an all-time high in engagement numbers.
