Keshet & Keshetot
Keshet is a Hebrew after school immersion and dual language programs for Hebrew speaking and non-Hebrew speaking children. Keshet is the Hebrew word for “rainbow” and it’s also a Hebrew acronym for “Community for Language and Culture” or Kehillat Safa V’ Tarbut.
These programs are the first of their kind in NYC. At the core of the program is the exceptional Israeli staff that’s committed to creating a nurturing and Hebrew/Israeli environment for the kids.
"This is the first year that I have sent my daughter to the Keshet program. It is an amazing environment for her to learn Hebrew as a living language and in conjunction with Jewish holidays and culture. Having the opportunity to attend the monthly Shira B'Shishi dinners solidifies the experience for her, and is something we both really look forward to. Shira B'Shishi is the way we can belong to the greater Keshet community. Participating in the Shabbat rituals together with a huge room full of people is very moving for us, since we are a small family of two. The group of musicians are very professional and create a joyful, Shabbat atmosphere. Singing songs with the words projected on slides is nostalgic, comforting, and uplifting. The Israeli food is delicious and plentiful, adding to the authenticity of the evenings. Shira B'Shishi can be chaotic in the most wonderful of ways, with the variety of Israeli, American, Israeli-American families eating, singing, and talking together - often all at once!" -- Julie
