Welcome to the Berman Center

Since 1984, the Philip and Muriel Berman Center has been the home of Jewish Studies at Lehigh. We serve as both an interdisciplinary curricular program and a research institute. As a program, we house the Jewish studies minor, which is open to all Lehigh students, and offer a robust selection of courses. As a research institute, we support and promote the research of our affiliated faculty. We also sponsor lectures, colloquia, seminars, and conferences, both at Lehigh and in locations as far afield as Groningen, Netherlands and Oxford, England. Our work bridges many academic fields, including the arts, history, international relations, languages, literature, and religious studies.
