BWPJC Cheder


Vicki Collinson – Head of Cheder

BWPJC Cheder teaches Hebrew language and the principles of Judaism to BWPJC children from school age (4+) through to their Bar/Bat Mitzvah.

Our vision is that all children will have pride in being Jewish and the knowledge to express their Jewishness with confidence.

BWPJC Cheder teachers create a friendly, engaging and fun environment, which focuses on being part of a community family and exploring our shared values and culture. In addition to Jewish Studies and Hebrew, BWPJC Cheder embraces the social aspect of learning and provides opportunities throughout the year to build friendships, confidence and identity – for example, through art projects, outdoor activities, cooking classes, music, and summer picnics.

BWPJC Cheder normally runs during term time on Saturday mornings from 10.30. Parents remain on site to provide support and to assist the teachers, as all our teachers and organisers are volunteer members of the community. We offer a few ‘try us out for free’ sessions for families who are not members of BWPJC.
Please contact our Head of Cheder at cheder@bwpjc, if you would like more information or to consider registering your child.
