Now celebrating our 46TH YEAR!


For over four decades, Congregation Am Haskalah has offered a home to Jews of the Lehigh Valley looking for a place to belong. We offer a creative, participatory approach to Judaism, blending tradition with innovation. With regular lay-led and rabbi-led services, community events, and continuing education for all types of learners, we hope to make space for all our members and visitors to participate in our congregational life.
