Our Schedule of Children's Classes
We currently offer several weekly classes held in
Crouch End. These informal, friendly classes are taught by either our
Rabbi, Sandra Kviat, or Naomi Kramer, an experienced Cheder teacher.
Our kids’ classes are called ‘Chaverim’ which means ‘friends’ and reflects our aims to make the children feel comfortable and secure with their Jewish identity and make local Jewish friends.
Year 5 & 6 at 5.15 - 6.15pm
Year 4 at 4.15 - 5.15pm
Bar/Bat Mitzvah 2 at 5.20– 6.30pm

Our Friday class will take place after school on the third Friday of every month, which will usually be just before the Chavurah’s regular Friday evening Shabbat service. See link below for current term dates.
At our classes the children are taught in small groups
and no previous Hebrew knowledge is necessary. The younger children
focus mainly on Jewish Studies (learning about Shabbat, the festivals,
stories from the bible etc.) as well as learning some Hebrew letters
and words. The older children’s classes also include topical
discussions relating to Jewish values and ethics.
We offer a 2 year B’nei Mitzvah programme which involves attending our Jewish Studies classes for 2 years as well as Hebrew preparation closer to the date of the actual ceremony. We also organise an outing/event for the B’nei Mitzvah children at least once a term and expect them to attend Chavurah services and take part in our community events. Children must be members of the Chavurah.
We can help organise a tutor for the Hebrew preparation. We recommend children begin this approximately 9 months before the date of their ceremony, so parents should contact us at least 12 months before the planned date to allow time to make the necessary arrangements.
All classes cost £8 per child for members and £12 for non-members, payable a term in advance.
There are discounted rates for siblings. We offer a trial class for children so they can see if they like the classes before joining.
