We want all Jewish children to have access to their heritage

Why we offer a Jewish studies service

We want to ensure that all Jewish children, regardless of learning difficulties, can reach their full potential. This includes giving them access to their Jewish heritage. We provide a holistic child-centred service as part of the Binoh multi-disciplinary team.

We support children’s Jewish Studies in both Hebrew and Yiddish language as required. Our specialist teachers and Rabbis combine a knowledge of Jewish studies and methodology with an understanding of special educational strategies and practice. This means they can offer effective support to both children and teachers.

Who we support

  • Children and young people who are experiencing difficulties in nursery, primary or secondary school or further education
  • Their parents
  • Staff in mainstream schools.

Our services
