Roy P. and Nan Ans Hillel House

Under the leadership of College President Mitchell B. Reiss and a specially appointed fundraising committee, Washington College has created a Hillel House on campus to support a growing and vibrant community of Jewish students. The house is located at 313 Washington Avenue, situated directly adjacent to the Washington College campus. There is a large kosher kitchen and a gathering space big enough to accommodate lectures and other events.

Support the Project

Message from the Chair

Since its dedication on April 25, 2012 the Hillel House has made a significant impact on campus and in the Chestertown community. Student membership continues to grow with strong leadership in place.  Gifts to the Hillel House have successfully provided for most of the renovations, programming and activities not only for our Jewish students but for a good number of supportive and interested faculty, staff, classmates and friends.

Appearing to the right are donors to the project to date. Spanning several decades the list of donors continues to grow. We are immensely grateful to everyone who has participated in this project so far. Gifts and pledges to the project now stand at more $246,039.22 towards our $350,000 goal.  Additional gifts to the Hillel House will support the endowment of this project to insure that future generations of alumni, faculty, staff and friends will enjoy the same vibrant programming and activities offered today.

If you have not already supported this project, I encourage you to consider what you can do to help. Barbara Heck, Senior Associate Vice President for Advancement will be happy to talk with you about a gift to the Hillel House endowment. She can be reached at 800-422-1782, ext. 7805. In the meantime, please know how grateful we are for your interest in Hillel at Washington College.

With best regards,

Roy P. Ans ’63, M.D.
