Through the Hillel Society, students have the opportunity to develop new friendships all within a Jewish context. The mission of the Hillel Society is to actively encourage and strengthen the continuity of Jewish values through a combination of religious, Zionist, and cultural programs for Lehigh's Jewish students.
The Lehigh University Hillel Society, is a student-run organization. The Jewish Student Center provides a Jewish home on campus for students to gather to relax, socialize, share a meal, observe Shabbat, and even offers a quiet place to study.
Our program includes a regular series of dinners, holiday observances/celebrations, social events, and educational programming. In addition to the many activities we sponsor throughout the school year, we provide a kosher kitchen, dining room, lounge area, student office, and library. We continually strive to create an atmosphere that is comfortable and welcoming for our students. This effort includes providing quality programming, maintaining our facility, and upgrading our program to accommodate the ever-changing needs of our students. The Hillel Director, directs the overall programming and management, works closely with students and provides guidance.
