- Welcome from Headteacher
It is my pleasure and privilege to be the head teacher of such an exciting and successful Cheder. We have approximately 175 children on our database and 41 members of staff. It is wonderful to see the young children learn and develop throughout their Cheder years, learning to read, to pray, the Parasha story, how to keep the Festivals, Shabbat, Kashrut, and about Israel.
We welcome praise as well as criticism and adjust ourselves accordingly.
Our next project is to develop a new curriculum which will cater for our children and be more relevant to their lives. We will focus on areas which we really want the children to know well, like how to run a Seder or how to make Kiddush, and to touch on other areas like Lag B’Omer, wetting their appetites enabling them to understand these topics better when they revisit them at a later stage in their lives.
My aim will be to ensure the children know what they learn well with a more hands on teaching methodology instead of giving them a broader basic knowledge. We encourage parents to join in and attend adult education classes to learn alongside their parents. These classes are periodically and have been very successful.
Our Cheder is open to all Jewish children ages 5-11 years old. Admission is in accordance with the criteria set by the United Synagogue and the Chief Rabbi.
Classes take place on Sunday mornings in The Royal School, Hampstead, from 9.45am to 12.45pm.
There are 3 terms, normally corresponding to the school terms.
