TOWSON HILLEL IS BOOMING!

Will you help us continue to grow?!

Towson University is growing exponentially—and so is the number of Jewish students attending and living in the Towson area which has increased 5% over the last three years.

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.

Naming opportunities

$10,000

Name the Towson Commons Space

$5,000

Name the Kitchen Space

$3,500

Welcome Entrance and Offices

$1,000

Lounge / recreation Area

Centrally located in downtown Towson, the space is easily accessible by foot from campus and has the added benefit of off-street parking and full-time security. It will provide: a full kitchen, a large multi-purpose room that can accommodate 100+ for meals, services, programs, game tables such as ping-pong and foosball, comfortable workspaces, chairs, and sofas, spaces perfect for studying or hanging out with friends, private offices for learning and Hillel planning meetings and a conference room for large educational seminars or meetings.

Help us reach our matching challenge of up to $50,000 generously established by Becky Brenner and the Ronnie H. and Allie Russel Charitable foundation.

Your investment in us is an investment in our students and alumni as they explore their relationship with Jewish traditions, family, memory, Israel, and community. Many, upon graduation will stay within the Baltimore area and become the next generation of leaders, donors and community members. We can’t do it without you!

OUR MISSION

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.
