More than 150 people turned out in the rain May 5 to celebrate Towson University Hillel’s 21st birthday. Billed as “Cheers and Peers to 21 Years!” the event included food and drink; music by False Peak and Tall in the Saddle; a children’s area; and Jewish organization and information booths.
The Associated: Jewish Federation of Baltimore’s Ruth Miller and Towson University president Dr. Kim Schatzel made an appearance.
“Overall it was a phenomenal day with a great turnout,” said Towson Hillel executive director Lisa Bodziner. “Despite the weather, people came out to have a good time, show their support and celebrate Towson Hillel turning 21! I couldn’t have asked for more of a community event and it was superfun for the kids to get face paint and dance in the rain! There were young families, board members, students, parents and so many community partners and sponsors here that came out to say ‘ain’t no rain gonna come down on my parade,’ and you really could feel that warmth.”
