Spiritual Life at Brandeis
The Chaplaincy is located in the Usdan Student Center, 133. The University’s three chapels, the Berlin Chapel (Jewish), the Bethlehem Chapel (Catholic), and the Harlan Chapel (Protestant), serve the Brandeis community under the operation of the Hillel Foundation, the Bethlehem Chapel Community, and the Harlan Chapel Christian Community. A Muslim Prayer Room and Resource Center is located in the basement of the Usdan Student Center. Services are held regularly, as well as other ceremonies such as weddings, christenings, and confirmations. There are many clubs and organizations available on campus for those seeking information or fellowship. The Hillel Foundation, the Catholic Student Organization, the Brandeis Muslim Student Association and the Christian Fellowship all strive to meet the religious needs of the Brandeis community. For more information about specific services, please contact the Chaplaincy at (781) 736-3570.
