Kesher Newton is a nationally recognized alternative to traditional Hebrew School, where children learn Jewish history, culture & ethics through project-based learning, and modern Hebrew language in an immersive, spirited, camp-like environment. Kesher Newton combines quality after school care (licensed by the Massachusetts Dept. of Early Education & Care) with exciting, dynamic Hebrew and Jewish education. Our innovative curriculum challenges students intellectually while fostering Jewish commitment, joy of learning, and active community participation. Kesher Newton is an independent, pluralistic community, that is welcoming to all.

Kesher Newton addresses the growth of each child and each family through a foundation of learning and a diversity of Jewish experiences with Jewish values at the core. Kesher is committed to inclusion and makes every effort to support each student’s learning needs.

Children come to Kesher Newton twice a week for the K-5 program and once or twice a week for Kesher Middle School. We coordinate our schedule with the Newton Public Schools, opening early on Wednesdays and early release Thursdays.
