Maryland Hillel provided me and my peers a home away from home. A space to step into our leadership and experience incredible opportunities both within our community and abroad that taught us about how to be better Jewish citizens of the world. Our goal is to create giving circles with the mini communities we made throughout our 4 years at UMD and Hillel (Alternative breaks, Tzedek fellows etc.) and give back to the organization and home that gave us so much so they can continue impacting college students’ lives.
