South Hampstead: Sukkot Cheder
Cheder students joined the synagogue’s rabbinical team for an upbeat dinner and diverse educational programme in the community Sukkah.
To ensure students still receive enjoyable and spiritually-beneficial educational experiences during a period of disrupted classes over the Chagim; to get children excited about Jewish festivals.
Evaluation from Rabbi Eli Levin:
“This festival-focussed event ensured that children had a totally engaging Sukkot educational experience via a hands-on event in the Sukkah. This was especially important considering that the majority of students do not have Sukkot at home. By the evening’s end parents were requesting a Cheder Pesach Seder for all the family!”
- A fun and joyful evening that gave our children a stronger sense of identity and belonging.
- As our child’s first experience of a Sukkah, it was a lovely way to learn about Sukkot.
- What a well-organised event. It offered the perfect combination of spirituality, storytelling and fun activities, while allowing children the opportunity to spend an evening with the wonderful rabbinic team and Cheder staff.
