Youth Education

Cheder

Our Jewish Studies Cheder Programme engages young people of all ages in Jewish learning within the context of broader life and their positions in it. The lessons are dynamic and inclusive, and we aim to meet each young person’s contributions with open-mindedness and curiosity.

Creche (ages 0-5), 11am-12:30pm on in-person service days: Our goal is to provide creche at every in person service; this is dependent on having enough volunteers on a rotating basis.

  
Cheder (ages 6-13) meets regularly on all Shabbat morning service days between 10-12pm:
  • 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month 10-12pm, whether on Zoom or in person at our Community Rooms.
  • Attendance via Zoom is possible even for our in-person sessions.
  •  
10am-11am: HEBREW, 6-13-year-olds together w/ Cheder Teacher Imogen & our Hebrew volunteers/madrichim for Hebrew. 
 
11am-12pm:  Jewish studies:
  • 5-9 year olds w/ Omar
  • 10-14 yr olds w/ Imogen
Rabbi Leah is reaching out to our post-b’nai mitzvah youth (ages 14+) for targeted activities for them.
 
Please email our Education Lead, Omar, at Omar@kehillah.org.uk to let us know if your child is planning to attend any of the above Creche, Hebrew, Jewish Studies, and of course if you are able to volunteer!
 
Please feel free to contact us for any clarification, questions, suggestions, and to volunteer.

  • Volunteers

 
Kehillah has 3 part-time staff: Rabbi Leah, Cheder teacher Imogen, and Administrator Ashleigh.  Everyone else you see and hear about doing work for Kehillah are volunteers; our grassroots volunteer ethos is something we take pride in.  We do not want our small staff to be a barrier to the quality of the services we provide.  So please volunteer with us if you can! In regards to youth education and activities, we are looking for volunteers for creche, Hebrew, and class assistants.  We are also reaching out to the wider Kehillah community for volunteers.
 
Please email our Education Lead, Omar, at Omar@kehillah.org.uk if you would like to volunteer!
