Gesher Jewish Day School serves Jewish families from all across Northern Virginia. Families of all types, with varied Jewish affiliations as well as non-affiliated families are represented in our student body.
We create an educational environment that is:
Through encounters with multiple approaches to Judaism, our students learn about themselves as well as how to respectfully differ from others. Graduates emerge with a strong sense of self as well as comfort within many different Jewish and non-Jewish settings.
We foster deep connections with Israel throughout our program, culminating in the signature 8th grade two-week Israel experience in which students develop their own unique relationship with our homeland.
The Jewish Studies curriculum at Gesher is multi-faceted and reflects our desire to instill in our students a deep love for their tradition, a desire to become lifelong learners, and an ability to read, understand, and appreciate the teachings of our people.
