Kesher = קֶשֶׁר = connection

Shalom! Welcome to Congregation Beth Israel’s Kesher Center for Jewish Learning!

Kesher is our Sunday school program, offering a vibrant, hands-on learning experience for infants and their care-givers, through high school students.

Our school supports and nurtures a deep sense of community through the core Jewish values of Torah, Avodah (the labor of serving God and the Jewish people with joy) and Gemilut Hasadim, (acts of loving kindness.) Our goals for our children are to foster in them a positive Jewish identity, to develop amongst them a strong sense of community, and to help each of them find a spiritual sanctuary within our community. We do this by nourishing their souls with vibrant and engaging programs designed to help them grow into the kind and caring human beings our Jewish tradition inspires.

Our doors are always open and you are always welcome. ! ברוכים הבאים
