The word Gesher means “bridge” and our sixth graders will begin taking steps to cross the bridge from childhood to Jewish adulthood. We believe that the family bond helps ease the transition from childhood to adulthood and builds bridges that will lead children to Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Confirmation, Graduation and beyond. We want our 6th Graders and their families to have engaging, relevant, and memorable learning experiences and Gesher is our way to help pave the path and set families on a learning journey together. Gesher students will attend either on Tuesdays or Wednesdays from 3:45 – 6:00 PM for Jewish Studies and Hebrew Studies. Gesher 6th Graders AND their parents will meet with our Rabbis and our Youth and Family Educators approximately one time per month (Schedule Below!) 6th Graders, together with their parents, will complete a special family project that will be displayed at the conclusion of the year. In addition, special activities for our 6th Grade students only will take place throughout the year!
