About Gesher

Gesher Judaic Studies Program was created to provide an affordable, yet comprehensive Judaic studies program for elementary-age students not in Jewish day school in Boca Raton, FL. Due to the coronavirus, Gesher transitioned to online learning for the 2020-2021 school year and grew to almost 100 students across the nation. Gesher has now solidified its’ presence in the national Jewish community and expanded our course offerings to meet the needs of more students.
