Cheder & Beyond

Welcome to EL-Squared: the name of our Cheder at ELELS

We have a thriving youth education system for ages four to 16 covering Cheder, Bar and Bat Mitzvah, and post-Bar/Bat Mitzvah (Yachdav and Kabbalat Torah). EL-Squared offers and enriching Liberal Jewish education in a fun and engaging setting. 


Classes are taught every Shabbat from 10:20am to 12:30pm and includes Jewish studies based around festivals, stories traditions and culturally significant topics, alongside comprehensive Hebrew lessons.

This mixture gives a seasonal structure to the year and offers a well-rounded learning experience within a vibrant community

In January 2020 we welcome Jonathan Young as our new Cheder Head Teacher. You can find out more about Jonathan in this blog post.
