GESHER is a collaborative educational initiative forged by Beth El Temple and Chisuk Emuna Congregation to create an innovative approach of offering supplementary religious, family, and adult education experiences for our members and our broader community.
GESHER supplementary religious school is home to approximately 30+ students and their families— including some from Temple Beth Shalom, Mechanicsburg—looking to experience a living and vibrant Judaism. The program offers classes for students in Pre-K thru Grade 7, and includes a variety of creative educational opportunities for parents (and family members) to learn along with their children in special Shabbat and Jewish Holiday programming throughout the year.
