Post Bar & Bat Mitzvah programme

We don’t believe Jewish learning should end at the age of 13 and there are many opportunities for teenagers to stay involved.

Our Religion School, HaMakom, runs an excellent post-B’Nei Mitzvah programme for Years 9 and 10, called Kabbalat Torah.

In Year 9 they learn more about Jewish literature and modern Jewish history with the Rabbi, in a course specifically geared for young adults.

In Year 10, they train to be teaching assistants, with lots of practical hands-on experience, and then once they have graduated they can go on to work as teaching assistants at HaMakom for which they are paid. This counts towards Duke of Edinburgh schemes, and is valuable work experience for later life.
