Temple Israel of Great Neck

Where Tradition Meets Change



What could be more heart-warming than a group of four year old children who are eager to sing, create, learn and be part of a Jewish community?  Our Gesher (bridge) program creates an unparalleled opportunity for four year children to enhance their Jewish foundation.  On sixteen Sunday mornings, our Gesher class becomes a microcosm of everything we want in education: hands-on learning through song, drama, art, and social interaction.  Through age-appropriate activities, our veteran early childhood educators provide an exciting and rich Jewish experience.

We invite you to be a part of Gesher:  our Sunday morning community that offers an opportunity for four-year old Jewish enrichment at Temple Israel.  Please call or email if you have any questions or concerns.

(Membership at Temple Israel is NOT a requirement for participation in Gesher).
