Israel on Campus

There are so many ways to connect with Israel on campus! Take a look at all we have to offer and all of the ways to get involved.


Students can get involved with Israel-based clubs right here at UMD. Some of these student groups include, but are not limited to, Terps for Israel, J Street, Mishelanu and Tamid. These student groups range from political to cultural to career-based, so whatever you are looking for you’ll be sure to find your place.


We offer trips to Israel that focus on different aspects of the country and allow you to enjoy and learn more about Israel. These trips include Birthright Israel and Israel Discovered.

Living and Learning

The University of Maryland offers 37 Jewish Studies courses and 10 Hebrew language courses. In addition to classes, you can choose to live in the Language House, St. Mary’s Hall, in the Hebrew cluster where you can live with other students improving your Hebrew and indulging in Israeli culture.
