Anniversary Campaign

In 2016, our congregation celebrated 30 years of rich Jewish communal life on the corner of Macada and Jacksonville Roads here in Bethlehem, Pa. This milestone provides an opportunity to ensure the future of Brith Sholom through capital improvements that will meet both the physical needs of the building and our spiritual needs through Torah.

Our Facility

The wood and glass construction and the surrounding trees and shrubbery create a feeling of warmth and bring a sense of beauty and nature into the sanctuary. The main sanctuary, with its wooden structures and central pulpit, is reminiscent of the old synagogues of Europe, most of them destroyed by the Nazis during World War II…

Welcome to Brith Sholom!

We embrace and inspire Jews of all ages...

We embrace and inspire Jews of all ages with: Communal celebration of Jewish living: meaningful and easy-to-follow services; enjoying a cup of coffee together after a delicious kiddush luncheon; getting together for good times and holidays among friends, in shul or out. Exceptional Jewish learning: Rabbi Michael Singer says that teaching is one of his favorite things, and it shows in the fascinating classes he leads and brings to your level, whether you are a newbie or a Torah scholar. Social connections: Brith Sholom is “where friends become family” because we have a mix of transplants and Lehigh Valley natives, ages ranging from 9 months to vibrant 90s, and diverse interests and professions, yet are able to forge meaningful relationships. All this in the context of a loving, spiritually engaging, and passionate traditional and evolving Judaism.

  • We welcome you to join us for a Shabbat morning or holiday service, stay for Kiddush, and meet the members of our congregation. You do not have to be a member to come and experience a service at Brith Sholom.

  • Generation to Generation The Brith Sholom Endowment Fund is committed to supporting outstanding programs for the benefit of the entire Jewish community. If you wish to become a part of this significant endeavor, please call the Brith Sholom office to arrange a meeting with an Endowment Fund trustee.
