Southern Maine Hillel

Southern Maine Hillel serves Jewish students at the University of Southern Maine, the University of New England, Southern Maine Community College, and the Maine College of Art.  At each campus, Southern Maine Hillel aims to create a safe and enriched environment for Jewish students, to offer a Jewish perspective and education to interfaith dialogues, to respond to issues of anti-Semitism, and to provide vibrant and dynamic links to Jewish people, culture and religion on these campuses.
