Shabbat at Maryland is a unique experience bringing all religious communities together in an open and welcoming environment. More than 300 students gather weekly for student-led Friday night services with Reform, Conservative, and traditional Orthodox options. On Shabbat morning we offer Conservative and Orthodox services.

More than 200 students come together for Shabbat dinner (free for students!) following services each week.
