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.
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.
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.

As a long-time camp person, I couldn’t remember a time where I didn’t live by the motto #10For2. All year long I count down for those 39 magical days of camp, because it’s given me lifelong friendships, shaped me into the leader I am today, and most of all it’s the place where I can be my most authentic self. For many of our Keshet participants and staff, their experience is no different.
Keshet Transition is designed to provide the necessary support to ease young adults into community life after high school. The work that these students do is meaningful, important, and allows them the opportunity to make a difference in the community they live in.
