Am I welcome at Shabbat?
Yes! We welcome students and community members of all backgrounds – Jewish and not Jewish, freshmen and seniors, summer camp alumni and Greek members, athletes and journalists. If you like food and community, this is the place for you. Bring your friends, too!

What kind of food do you have?
The menu varies from week to week. But our food is always kosher certified, vegetarian- and vegan-friendly, and sensitive to a variety of allergies. If you want to make sure that there’s something for you to eat, click here to sign up and share your dietary practices with the kitchen.

Are there prayer services? Do I have to come to them?
We usually have Conservative, Reform, and Orthodox services that start around 6:00 in the winter and 7:00 in the fall and spring. You’re welcome to come to services or to join students who are socializing, snacking, and hanging out in our lobby. Or you can come just in time for dinner (7:30 winter, 8:30 fall/spring). Whenever you show up, you’re welcome here.

Do I have to pay for meals?
Friday night meals are free for current UMD students. If you’re a prospective student, parent, alum, or community member, or want to join us on Saturday, click here to sign up for meals.

What’s the dress code?
There’s no dress code – come as you are!

If you have any other questions, please feel free to email Annie Prusky, our Springboard Education Fellow. We hope to see you at a Shabbat soon!
