Towson University has an active and diverse Jewish presence on campus. We are proud to be a part of such a wonderful community! Our mission is to enrich the lives of Jewish undergraduate and graduate students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world. 
It is our goal to provide our Jewish Community with 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.
We encourage all students from every background to participate in our events, hang out in the Hillel Lounge, or come to one of our Shabbat dinners.

For information on our upcoming events, check out our calendar page, and also make sure you follow us on Facebook. Feel free to contact us at any time if you have any questions, or would like more information concerning Jewish life on Towson’s campus.
