The Hassidic Cheder was established in Jerusalem in 2019 as an elementary school for Hassidic boys. It is a Charedi government-aided school that provides Hassidic families with a broader educational option than the traditional “cheiders” in the city. Alongside an intensive curriculum of Torah subjects, they learn a range of secular subjects plus creative arts, science and music. The school organizes field trips and enrichment workshops, and activities to encourage community cohesion among the students’ families.
Under the leadership of the principal Rav Shalom Einhorn, the school is staffed by a highly professional team of Hassidic teachers. They aim to instill in their students their own love of Torah, the importance of Jewish ethical principles, and a positive outlook on life. The first cohort started in Kindergarten and is now in Third Grade.
In 2022, a second Hassidic Cheder was opened in Beit Shemesh with an initial cohort of 30 boys.
