Temple Israel of Lehighton is a 'Jewel of a Shul' set up on the hill.
It is a cozy, warm place where all seekers are welcome. Our practice is wide-ranging and pluralistic.
We strive for connection to the Eternal through varied modalities: music, theater, discussion, meditation and chanting.
We are a new/old community: Temple Israel of Lehighton was founded in 1924 and is currently in the process
of 're-Jew-venation'. Join us!

Our Mitzvah Project

Jewish Family Service of the Lehigh Valley Kosher Food Pantry
/ Lehighton Community Food Pantry

Help keep our food pantry stocked . . .

Every time you attend an event, please bring a nonperishable food item with you. We have a collection basket located in the Social Hall of Temple Israel of Lehighton.

We are taught "Ein Kemach, ein torah." Without flour, there can be no torah. Some interpret this literally: if one is hungry, one cannot learn. Others translate torah as the proper way to live one's life. The verse might then read: Without food, one can't live an honest, proper life.
