Did you know?
The Three Chapels at Brandeis were dedicated on Oct. 20, 1955.
Designed by the architectural firm Harrison and Abramovitz, these innovative structures were the first interdenominational chapels (Jewish, Protestant and Catholic) built on a U.S. college campus.
They were designed to be equal in size and situated so that one never casts a shadow on another.
Welcome to the Chaplaincy
The chaplains of Brandeis University warmly welcome you to the Brandeis community. As Jewish, Christian and Muslim leaders, we welcome students of all faiths. We are here to be of service to the entire Brandeis community.
Brandeis encourages and supports all expressions of spiritual and religious life on campus. The university’s three chapels — the Berlin Chapel (Jewish), the Bethlehem Chapel (Catholic) and the Harlan Chapel (Protestant) — serve as the focal point of spiritual and religious activity on campus. In addition, a Muslim prayer room and resource center are located in the Usdan Student Center.
