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!
