Rabbi Jeremy Fierstien,
Executive Director

Rabbi Jeremy joined UMBC Hillel as the Executive Director in July of 2016. Prior to his appointment he served as the Associate Director of Cornell Hillel in Ithaca, NY. Jeremy completed a BS in Family Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park (Go Terps!) and received Rabbinic Ordination from Hebrew College in Newton, MA.

Jeremy grew up in Bradley Beach New Jersey, across the street from the Atlantic ocean, where he learned how to surf and attended Yeshiva day school and Camp Ramah in the Berkshires. He loves exploring the outdoors with his son and dog, fishing, and is a sports fanatic.

Jeremy is excited to explore the breadth and depth of Jewish tradition with the UMBC Jewish students as well as to experiment with how to best foster a pluralistic Jewish community on campus. If you are interested in getting together for a cup of joe or just to chat you can reach Jeremy at 908 770 5695 or by email at Go Retrievers!
