Creating a deep and lasting love of Judaism, one kid at a time


Cheder is a fun and educational opportunity for Jewish children ages 5 to 12 that meets on Tuesday afternoons at 4 pm. The program caters to kids enrolled in non-Jewish schools as well as to current Akiva students and alumni. The goal of the program is to forge lasting positive relationships between participants and Judaism through a meaningful and individualized Jewish educational experience.
In keeping with Sherith Israel’s philosophy of nurturing each individual's connection to Judaism, Cheder provides a warm environment in which every child can express himself or herself and discovers the excitement of our common Jewish heritage. Whether learning Hebrew, re-imagining and enacting a biblical story, studying Talmud, or exploring Israeli pop music, students' interests come first.
 
Amazing things are happening at Cheder. We hope you and your family will join us!
 
The program is open to all Jewish children, regardless of background or affiliation.
