Or Tuesdays/Thursdays

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 in sync with the Newton Public School calendar. We meet 2:50 - 5:45 on most days, and offer early drop-off at 12:20 on Wednesdays for Newton/Needham/Waltham early release days. Drop-off is rolling during Hebrew immersive snack and free time. Classes begin at 3:30.

  Kesher Middle School (grades 6-8)  

Grades 6-8 meets weekly on Wednesdays, from 2:50-5:45pm. 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.  Students also participate in monthly Tiyulim or field trips around Jewish New England!

  Monday Middle School Ulpan (grades 6-8)

Kesher Middle School students who want to expand their conversational Hebrew skills can join us on Mondays from 2:50-5:45 for extra Hebrew lessons, practice and chugim!
