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.
Towson Hillel, a proud agency of The Associated: Jewish Federation of Baltimore, is able to respond in times of crisis thanks to the funding and financial support it receives from The Associated’s Annual Campaign. Now, more than ever, our Associated network needs your support to continue meeting the growing needs in our community due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Please give generously: associated.org/donate
We are dedicated to offering a wide range of opportunities to help Towson University students continue their Jewish journey into adulthood.
As a member of the Baltimore Jewish Community we strive to find internship, mentorship and work opportunities for our students.

Dear Towson University Community,
Towson University continues to actively monitor the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and provide updates to the TU community. There are currently no known confirmed cases of COVID-19 at Towson University, and the campus remains open for normal operations for faculty and staff.
This update follows a Tuesday, March 10 announcement that classes would be canceled March 11, March 12 and March 13 in advance of spring break.
Towson University will transition classes to distance-learning format when the spring term resumes Monday, March 23. Face-to-face classes will resume on Monday, April 6. Additional messages to faculty and students on the roll-out of this educational environment will be shared in the coming days.
Students should not return to campus immediately following spring break. Residence halls that are closed during spring break will reopen to students on Saturday, April 4. Housing & Residence Life will continue to provide updates to all residential students.
All university-sponsored events and gatherings hosted at TU through April 4 are suspended — an extension of the previously-announced March 22 date.
This continues to be a fluid and rapidly evolving situation. The University may take alternative action as appropriate.
The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff remains our primary concern. As communicated yesterday, we recognize that these are extraordinary times that require exceptional measures to deal with a health risk that affects us all.
For information and updates related to the broad set of actions Towson University is taking to address this public health situation, please visit towson.edu/coronavirus.
