Jewish Student Union
at the University of Maryland
The Jewish Student Union (JSU) at the University of Maryland strives to create a space for Jews of all backgrounds and all those interested in Jewish culture to come together to celebrate Jewish identity through social events and educational programs.

We are always organizing new and engaging activities for our members like the Happy Hanukkah online event or our popular Pen Pal Program

The Jewish Student Union is the largest cultural and social organization recognized and sponsored by the University, through the Student Government Association.
We are the most prominent student-run Jewish organization on campus. The vast majority of our operating budget comes from your Student Activities Fee. You hold a share in what goes on, and we want you to speak up!
