Learning, community & giving back

Sundays are special with art, music, friends and tradition

Raising good people

A Keshet parent once shared, “My son goes to school all week to learn academics. On Sundays, he goes to Keshet to learn to be a good person.” Keshet Sunday School explores topics like kindness, respect, teamwork and community.

Multisensory curriculum

Lessons are designed by special education teachers to use visual supports and differentiated instruction. As part of a multisensory experience, each Sunday closes with all students coming together for joyful singing led by fantastic musicians.

Jewish for all

Students come from many religious backgrounds and all Jewish denominations. Small classes and a variety of program options allow us to tailor lessons specifically to students’ interests and families’ religious observance.
