The goal of this level is to deepen your understanding of how one lives Judaism as a Jewish woman. The beginnings of textual proficiency through an exploration of the major themes of Chumash will allow you to begin to draw knowledge from original sources. An appreciation of core beliefs will be complimented by an appreciation of what a Jewish woman is all about and what great Jewish women have done. A workshop will be dedicated to self-development so you can take all that you are learning and integrate it into your own personality in an authentic way.

Gesher is divided into three semesters: winter, spring and summer.
