A new 39,105-square-foot Hillel cultural center will be on Yale Avenue, next to fraternity row and St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church.
The current Hillel, located on Mowatt Lane, is about 16,700 square feet whereas the new Hillel will be more than 39,000 square feet.
University of Maryland Hillel collaborated with Artists4Israel to host a mural painting event on McKeldin Mall on April 11.
Students on the Hillel dining plan who have pre-registered can pick up kosher food from South Campus Dining Hall until May 4.
"Any opportunity that we have to show that we’re here and to show that we are a community together — even if we’re a community apart — is valuable.”
The event followed an eight-hour-and-46-minute prayer chain.
Meatless Mondays might not be practical for all UMD students.
The new building's doors are expected to open in 2022.
The stores offer Latin, Asian, kosher and halal food options.
