Kesher means Connect
First day of Kesher: September 21st!
New temporary location for the 2021-2022 school year!
Kesher Newton is excited to be part of a new shared campus of Jewish life and learning at our current location on the Temple Reyim property, which will include Hebrew College, and dozens of other Jewish organizations, beginning in December 2022. You can read more about this exciting project, here.
During the construction period, beginning Fall 2021, Kesher Newton will be temporarily located at the current Hebrew College campus in Newton Centre at 160 Herrick Road in Newton Centre.
Plan for Fall 2021
K-5 can choose between:
Mondays 2:50 - 5:45
Wednesdays 12:30 - 5:45
Kesher After-School meets twice a week on Mondays/Wednesdays or Tuesdays/Thursdays. Students experience game-based modern Hebrew learning, Judaic studies, and fun chugim (electives).
Kesher is sync with the Newton Public School calendar. We meet 2:50 - 5:45 on most days, and offer early drop-off at 12:30 on Wednesdays for Newton early release day. Drop-off is rolling during Hebrew immersive snack and free time. Class begins at 3:30.
Grades 6-8 will continue to meet weekly on Wednesdays, from 3-5:45pm. Students will re-discover their Jewish identities through exploring important times in Jewish history, and answering the question “what does it mean to be a Jew today?” Students will participate in “Talmudic discussions” about hard topics and current events, as well as organize a tzedakah project. Additionally, students will continue their modern Hebrew studies and participate in the Boston-Haifa connection.
