Our ‘Chedarim’ offer a weekly opportunity for children to learn about Jewish life, traditions, history and practices in an engaging and welcoming environment. We believe it is necessary for all children to enjoy a positive Jewish learning experience to create a solid foundation for their future Jewish learning and life.

We have recently developed a new syllabus where pupils are encouraged to explore and appreciate their Jewish heritage. The festival curriculum offers a range of age appropriate educational activities, with an emphasis on using multi-sensory methods, combining formal and informal teaching approaches.

The main focus is on 'learning through experience’, so that Judaism can be experienced as a living entity, rather than an academic study. Hebrew reading is a fundamental part of Jewish education, though not always easy to learn. In conjunction with Aleph Champion USA, we have developed a new and updated UK version of the popular Aleph Champ programme. This exciting reading system is based on the martial arts motivational philosophy of colour-coded levels and testing. This popular programme is being used successfully in most Chedarim and many Jewish Primary schools in the UK.
