JLC seeks your support as we continue to build a vibrant and pluralistic Jewish community at the University of Maryland.
Jewish Leadership Council Mission Statement 2011-2012
JLC brings together a diverse group of Jewish student leaders on campus to connect the Hillel Board, staff and students. We represent the student voice by advising on issues concerning the greater Jewish community on campus. JLC works to ensure the continuity of a vibrant Jewish community of University of Maryland campus.
We all have experienced glory days as college students, going from class to class. No matter where we come from or what we studied, we all share one thing in common we are Jewish Terps! From your past involvement on the Jewish Leadership Council we hope that you can continue your commitment to Maryland Hillel.
As the Jewish community grows and Hillel continues to offer new experiences such as free Shabbat meals and expanded Birthright and Alternative Break programs, it is vital that we are able to raise the money to help Hillel grow.
This year we as JLC members are highly motivated and enthusiastic about contributing to Hillel's continued success. In order to better serve the Jewish students on campus, the members on the Jewish Leadership Council have committed to raising $18,000 to fund a grant program for students run by students. These grants will allow the JLC to assist the student groups and Hillel in by providing important funding for the key programs provided by student groups and Hillel on campus. We hope you can support us in our fundraising effort and to help further our mission.
