Welcome to Jewish Life at Lehigh University!

As the University's home for Judaism and Jewishness, we're here to help everyone find their own Jewish space at Lehigh and to serve the needs of Lehigh's Jews and non-Jews with Jewish programming, leadership and volunteer opportunities, holiday and cultural celebrations, interfaith dialogue and general support.

One of the our central efforts is breaking down the barriers that often compartmentalize a sense of Judaism and Jewishness into specific limited times and places. We aim to add a Jewish dimension to everyday life at Lehigh and work with people to integrate being Jewish into who they are in their daily lives. As a result, we typically work in partnership with other branches of the University, including the Office of Student Leadership Development, the Women's Center, the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs and the Office of Multicultural Affairs, as well as various student organizations.
