Kesher, meaning connection, aims to facilitate connections between each individual child and their own expression of Judaism, among children and families, and with meaningful Jewish rituals and experiences. We utilize a social, emotional and spiritual learning frame to explore ways in which Judaism can support children in important aspects of their own human development. Our core Jewish life program for Kindergarten-6th grade meets in-person on Sundays. All Kesher programs include three family Shabbat experiences that occur on a Friday evening.
