Welcome to our cheder! 


The Sukkat Shalom cheder is open to children from P1 up to Bar/Bat Mitzvah.  


Due to coronavirus, we are operating in zoom for the foreseeable future. We can’t wait to see everyone in person again! But only when it is safe to do so. 




For the year 2020-2021 we are offering the following sessions on some Saturdays:


3.15PM: Kita Alef –kids will listen to stories and create together in these hands-on, interactive sessions. The sessions will focus on holidays and the Jewish calendar. This group is aimed at P1-P3, but pre-schoolers are welcome to join with their parents.


4.00PM Kita Bet - these sessions emphasise Hebrew conversation and literacy, alongside Jewish holidays. This group is aimed at P4-P6, though there is always flexibility.


 5.00PM Kita Gimel is our pre-Bar and Bat Mitzvah group. It will build on learning from previous years, opening participants to a wide range of key topics in Jewish life through stories, history, texts, videos, discussion and practices.
