Lehigh University students know Christmas-Saucon Hall as the oldest building on campus. Before it became an academic building, however, it was a place of worship. Moravians had constructed the building to house their growing congregation and serve the South Bethlehem community.
The Hillel Society is a prominent campus-based organization that is committed to social betterment. The national Hillel Society was formed in 1924, and it has fostered deep ties to the global Jewish community since then.
