Kesher means Connect

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/Brookline/Waltham early release days. Drop-off is rolling during Hebrew immersive snack and free time. Classes begin at 3:30.
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 periodic Tiyulim or field trips around Jewish New England!
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!
