Maryland Hillel seeks an Engagement Associate who is a natural relationship-builder with a love for Judaism and who will bring energy and creativity to their work with Jewish life on campus. Your focus will be to build relationships with students uninvolved or less involved in Jewish life on campus and make Judaism accessible and relevant to students of all backgrounds through a variety of initiatives and programs.
Maryland Hillel serves one of the largest and most dynamic Jewish campus communities in the country. Actively seeking to engage Jewish students on their own terms, Maryland Hillel provides students with Jewish opportunities that are meaningful, empowering and engaging. Through a creative mix of leadership training, education, volunteerism, social, spiritual, and cultural opportunities, students are inspired to realize their potential and become the best versions of themselves.
Maryland Hillel, located in College Park, MD in close proximity to Washington, DC, enjoys a national reputation for its Jewish community, both due to its size with some 5,800 Jewish undergrads, and, more critically, due to the vibrancy of Jewish life on campus. Maryland Hillel draws students to the University of Maryland from around the country with large contingents from Maryland, the tristate area, Florida and California. Following many years of growth, Hillel is conducting a capital campaign to construct a custom-built 40,000 square foot Jewish student center to continue to support this thriving Jewish community into the future.
