From the time of its founding, New London Synagogue has always been a Beit Midrash – a house of study. Our founding Rabbi, Dr Louis Jacobs himself was a Talmid Chacham – a Torah scholar and a teacher, as is his student, our current Rabbi, Jeremy Gordon. Today, we celebrate our past while building for the future by offering a range of educational opportunities for all ages and interests, including:

  • A bustling Cheder (Sunday School) from Reception through year 9
  • A comprehensive Bar/Bat Mitzvah Programme for years 6 though 9
  • A Madrichim (student mentoring) programme for teens completing cheder
  • A highly successful conversion course, including Hebrew and Jewish studies
  • Unique Adult Education sessions with the Rabbi, Cantor, Youth Director and guests
  • Torah, Haftarah and Megillah reading (trope) classes
  • Basic and Advanced level service leadership (sh’lichut) courses
  • A vibrant music education programme including Adult and Youth choirs
