Let these words, which I command you this day, be always in your heart. Teach them diligently to your children...
Gesher, our lively Saturday morning religion school provides Jewish education for children aged 5 to 15, including study for Bar/Bat Mitzvah and Kabbalat Torah. We welcome children where either parent is Jewish. Gesher runs for most weeks during term time.
Our Gesher morning is divided between Jewish Studies and Hebrew. We use the Liberal Judaism curriculum for Jewish Studies, providing our students with a grounding in Jewish Life and thought. We use a very interactive learning style, including learning Hebrew letters using Lego and craft projects to explore Jewish topics.
We include Torah texts and what they teach us today, festivals, lifecycle events, ethical teachings and much more.
Gesher students run our regular family service with help from their families.
