Welcome

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 classes, we hope to make space for all our members and visitors to participate in our congregational life.

 

Am Haskalah offers a creative, participatory approach to Judaism, blending tradition with innovation.

 

We’d love to have you join us!

COVID-19 RESPONSE:

 

Am Haskalah will be online AND in-person for the High Holidays, with one exception: the Erev Shabbat Shuvah Service will be online only. Full schedule and more High Holiday details.

 

The most up-to-date information can always be found on our Calendar, or you can email our office.

RSVPs and proof of boosted vaccination are required for attending anything in person. Please send in advance, whenever possible.

Masks are required at all times, except for when eating (there will be Oneg).

We will be using the main sanctuary for some Friday night services, to better spread out. (Look for our rainbow sign in the window to see which side of the building we’ll be in on that day.)

Zoom will continue for (nearly) everything.
