Welcome to Gesher!

Our high school program is designed to provide our teens with a Jewish environment in which to learn and to socialize. Our teachers include local rabbis, community members and include professors and students from area colleges.

Gesher meets Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30pm.  Students eat dinner together from 6:30-7:00pm. The rest of the evening is divided into two periods, 7:00-7:45 and 7:50-8:30. 

The Gesher school year is divided into three trimesters (September-December, January & February, and March-May).  Students are presented with a menu of possible classes & have a chance to meet the teachers.  They are asked to choose classes that interest them the most.  Based on the students’ choices we plan our year with 2 classes offered each period.  Classes offered will be changed each trimester.
