Spring Raffle to Support Shabbat on Campus

raffle ticketsFor five years, the Jewish community at UMBC has been gathering together with friends to celebrate Shabbat, the sabbath.  Shabbat is a consistent and important part of campus weekend life for the UMBC Jewish community and beyond.  We strive to make Shabbat meals free of charge for our students so there is little obstacle to them connecting with one another and with Jewish tradition.


Help support Shabbat at UMBC for next school year and enter for a chance to win fabulous prizes!


You can buy a raffle ticket for $20 each or a set of six for $100 between now and Friday, June 8.

The drawing will take place on-campus on Thursday, June 14 at 2 PM at the Interfaith Center.  Everyone is welcome, but you need not be present to win.


Prizes include:

NYC day trip for two including theatre tickets.

A topaz and diamond pendant necklace by David Yurman from the Petite Albion collection from Radcliffe Jewelers.

Tour of the State Capitol and lunch in Annapolis for two hosted by Hon. Jon S. Cardin.

Pairs of tickets for the Ravens, Orioles and Redskins.

Tickets to AVAM, the National Aquarium, and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.

Challah Covers and Jewelry by local artists.

Local restaurants, spas, salons, and massage therapy.

And much more!

You may buy tickets on-line here (we will mail your portion to you), or arrange by email to buy them in person from raffle co-chairs Joanne Felton or Randy Melnick, or from Cara Behneman or Rabbi Jason Klein on-campus.
