Mission & Vision

At Gesher Jewish Day School we inspire our students to:

  • Be passionate about learning
  • Practice justice, kindness, and respect
  • Aspire to a life guided by Jewish values, Torah, and community

Statement of Philosophy

Gesher is dedicated to educational excellence, an individualized approach to learning, and to providing a nurturing and exciting educational environment.

Our students are challenged to think critically and creatively and to acquire the skills they will need for tomorrow.

Our integrated curriculum of general and Jewish studies prepares students to be knowledgeable and committed Jews, dedicated to the State of Israel, and informed and responsible American citizens.

Gesher is a welcoming, pluralistic community where children of varied practices and approaches to Judaism come together to learn and where responsibility for self, caring for others, and stewardship of the environment are core values.

Gesher is a ready partner and educational resource for the wider Northern Virginia community.

Gesher brings together families with diverse Jewish identities.
