Hebrew

It is a pleasure and a privilege to be able to head up our Hebrew classes. Families of all backgrounds are made to feel comfortable and welcome. We believe at Kehillah that Hebrew learning should be fun, upbeat and interesting.

We were the first community to introduce the newly developing Eizeh Kef system with our children and to date they have made amazing progress. We are very proud of our achievements in the field of supplementary education. Children who can already read and understand the Hebrew in that programme, and older children who join cheder aged 10 or 11 progress to Teenage Texts.

This group explores Hebrew text, with English translation, grappling with the meaning behind the stories and the ethical questions they raise for today. They also study the prayer book and prayer itself.

Both groups meet from 10-11am on Shabbat mornings in term time, and during half terms, whenever there is a service.

We think our Hebrew programme is one of the very best Jewish experiences your child can get out with the school setting. However, do not take our word for it; come in and see our class in action!

A Prayer for London

Eternal God, now more than ever do we understand that everyone of us is connected, none of us is alone. None of us untouched by the suffering in our city, in London. Our ears are filled with the sounds of sirens, our eyes and minds are full of the sight of terrible terrible suffering. None of us is left untouched. We think of those who lost their lives in Grenfell tower. They and their families are like us and our grandparents and parents. They came here for a better life and a life of peace. We think about the terrible wounds, and the terrible deaths of those in Borough Market and London Bridge, and Westminster, and now outside the Finsbury Park Mosque and we search for the courage it takes to carry on. To live with such loss and such pain. Give us the courage to fight for what is right, and the gentleness to be open to our grief, and let every scar that we Londoners must bear, be one day part of what will make us strong, and let us say, amen.
