Hillel North is Maryland Hillel’s community for students living on North Campus and underclassmen living off campus. Shabbat dinners, social programs, and holiday events are just some of the Hillel North initiatives you can look forward to this year! We want to connect North Campus Jews with each other and with all that Maryland Hillel has to offer across campus.

To hear about the next Hillel North event and for questions, join this Facebook group for Jewish Terps in the Class of 2021 and email Jessa Cameron.

North Campus Shabbat

Celebrate Shabbat on in the residence halls North Campus with challah and new friends from the North Campus community. Shabbat on North Campus often features a different theme (e.g. ShaBBQ, Breakfast for Dinner, and “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!” Shabbat) or special program.

Hillel North Bagel Club

Looking for a snack in between classes or a fun way to start your day? Come to Hillel North Bagel Club every Tuesday morning to meet North Campus friends and hear about what’s happening at Maryland Hillel.

If you’re a first-year student interested in creating opportunities for Jewish life on North Campus and becoming a campus leader through Maryland Hillel, learn more about becoming a Hillel North Ambassasdor.

Past Hillel North Programs


In preparation for Halloween and Shabbat, we made candy-filled and delicious challah! Everyone got to braid their own dough and enjoy fresh challah!

Shabbat “ShaBBQ” Dinner

We enjoyed an extra special Shabbat to cap off the first week of classes. We ventured to La Plata Beach for a casual, relaxed, BBQ-style Shabbat.
