Programs For Teens

Hebrew High School

Our Hebrew High School is a hub for our teens to discuss and debate, as well as to extend the possibilities for Tikkun Olam thru our Gesher Teen program. The Gesher program is a Gesher Social Action Alliance between the Pelham Jewish Center and Shaarei Tikvah of Scarsdale. Gesher means bridge. The whole world is a very narrow bridge, and the most important thing is not to be afraid. כל העולם גשר צר מאוד” Our teens act as class counselors by engaging with our younger children as Jewish role models and older “siblings.” They bring a priceless contribution to our holistic vision of Jewish education and community building.
