we are closed for the month of july

After thirty-eight years in the Columbia University area, Riverside Language Program has found a new home, in Manhattan's Upper West Side.

If you are coming to join one of our lotteries or to begin classes with us, please make sure that you come to our new address:

Riverside Language Program

270 West 89th Street

New York NY 10024

Having been given just two months to find a new home, we were hard pressed to locate accommodation with space for four classrooms, a workshop and computer lab and offices for our counselors and staff.

Fortunately, B'nai Jeshurun came to our rescue by offering us space - just as we were beginning to lose faith. B'nai Jeshurun, a synagogue and Jewish community center,  is committed to the same values as we have at Riverside: those of  acceptance and welcome to  all, regardless of background, ethnicity, faith, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity.

The sign on the 89th Street wall of B'nai Jeshurun, our new home,  proclaims love and tolerance.

We will be open at the beginning of August. Our lottery day is Wednesday, August 3rd; please join us from 10am onwards.

If you are fortunate enough to be granted a place, or are continuing your studies after the summer recess, please note that our first day of class is Thursday, August 18th. Last day of class will be Friday, September 30th.

Also note that class hours are now 9am to 3pm.
