We have developed an exciting curriculum for each year group which includes prayers, Shabbat, Kashrut, rites of passage and the festivals. It also teaches how to be a moral jew through learning stories from the Torah and understanding our responsibility to the wider world. Lessons are supported with practical, experiential and fun activities such as Chanukiah painting and Matzah baking throughout the year, as well as visits from a Sofer (scribe), trips to our local Synagogues, singing lessons, and even lessons in Israeli dancing. We also encourage parental involvement through holding special children and adult workshops, such as Dads 'n' Lads Tzitzit making, as well as a family Friday night meal and events such as "Havdalah & Hot Dogs".
Hebrew reading is taught to all classses and carefully coordinated so that your children are supported throughout their RAYDER journey. The small class sizes mean that each child is able to practise his/her reading with the teacher individually and children are continually rewarded for their success with praise and our "RAYDER Shekels" reward scheme.
Our experienced teaching staff encourages real enthusiasm and love for Judaism through educating in a informal yet constructive an disciplined environment. Children regularly tell us how much they enjoy RAYDER, and from our own observation, we know that many of our children arrive smiling and leave smiling too.
We look forward to welcoming your children at RAYDER.
