2022-23 Annual Report

What an exceptional year for Towson University Hillel!

This was a year of new beginnings, in which we have laid the foundation which will support our Hillel in the years to come. Our first full year without Covid restrictions since 2018-2019, Towson University Hillel started the year with three brand new staff members (Rabbi Alex Salzberg, Jamie Aaron, and Lexi Dockman) and a new space that was full of potential (TU Hillel @TheCommons). There was a lot of learning to be done, but our students and community stakeholders supported us as we continued beloved traditions and developed new ones for this new era.

Our incredible student leaders took ownership of our Hillel program and community. They made sure that beloved traditions continued and led the transition into this new era of our community.
