Welcome to the Lehigh University Hillel Society. 

The mission of Lehigh Hillel is to encourage student exploration of Jewish identity through cultural, religious, and Israel related programming.

The Lehigh University Hillel Society is a student-run organization. We offer a free Shabbat dinner every Friday night, holiday celebrations, social events, cultural programs such as cooking and movies, and community service. The Jewish Student Center and all of our programs are open to students of any background and experience level with Judaism.  We welcome involvement, whether it be coming up with ideas for programming, helping to plan, or just showing up and bringing friends.

The Jewish Student Center provides a home on campus for students to gather, relax, share a meal, and explore and express their Jewish identity. Among the JSC’s amenities are free computers and printing, quiet study rooms, a snack-stocked kosher kitchen, a dining room, a lounge area and a library. We are connected to the Lehigh internet and there is wireless internet available throughout the building. All Lehigh students have swipe access to the JSC from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays and from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends.

The Director of Jewish Student Life acts as a resource for all Jewish groups on campus, works closely with students on programming, and is available for spiritual counseling and direction and to answer any questions students may have about Judaism.  The Director is also the representative of the Lehigh Jewish community to the administration, and a good person to come to with any concerns related to being Jewish on campus.
