Kesher
The Greenberg Religious School at PSC

Welcome to Kesher! Kesher, meaning connection in English, is a school focusing on student’s interests and learning styles through project-based experiential learning and student-focused curriculum. Through our flexible commitment model if you are a member of our community, your tuition is included in your membership! We believe the education of your child is more important than assigning a number for their enrollment. Join us and build your child’s connected future! 

K-6th curriculum integrates culture, history, hebrew language, life cycles, Israel, prayer, holidays and mitzvot with values rooted in our goal of creating strong Jewish identities. 

7th graders will focus, with the PSC clergy, on their b’nei mitzvah through the concentration of Jewish law, big questions, Jewish responsibility, customs and practice. Our 7th grade families will also be part of a B’nei Mitzvah shabbaton and workshops during the year. 

8th graders explore a survey of Jewish history, traveling along the timeline of our people and through countries where we’ve established communities, picked up culture and learned livelihood.

Kabbalat Torah, our 9-12th grade program, is a 5 year curriculum, cycling through topics such as ethics and medical ethics, theology, Zionism and holocaust and community organizing, and social justice.
