The Office of Jewish Student Life is Lehigh University's home for Judaism and Jewish Life. As the home of Lehigh Hillel, as well as other endeavors, 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.

Our goal is 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. Regardless of one's Jewish affiliation, practice or beliefs, there is a place here on campus for each one of us. As part of the Office of the University Chaplain, we are also a part of the Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Equity. As a result, we often work in partnership with the Pride Center for Sexuality and Gender Identity, the Center for Gender Equity (formerly the Women's Center) and the Office of Multicultural Affairs. We also collaborate with the Office of Student Leadership Development, the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs, the Office of Residence Life, and other University Offices.


Home Away from Home

The Jewish Student Center building offers a kosher kitchen, dining room, student lounge and game room, plenty of study spaces, a meditation room, prayer room for student-led religious services, and offices for additional staff to oversee expanded programming and student engagement initiatives.

We're excited for you to visit!

Feel free to come by the Jewish Student Center between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. We would be happy to give you a tour. Ring the door bell to the right of the front door. If you need to schedule a tour outside that timeframe, please reach out to our Office Coordinator Jane Hontz at or 610-758-4896.
