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, was a Talmid Chacham – a Torah scholar and a teacher, and that love of learning continues to inspire the community. The range of educational opportunities for all ages and interests includes:

  • Our Cheder, Sunday School,  (from Reception to year 7)
  • Our Bar/Bat Mitzvah Programme (for years 6 to 9)
  • Our L’Hayim Conversion Programme
  • Adult Hebrew learning – including occasional crash courses for complete beginners and weekly classes for progressing learners
  • Adult Education sessions with the Rabbi, Cantor and guests
  • Occasional Torah, Haftarah and Megillah reading (trope) classes
  • Basic and Advanced level service leadership (sh’lichut) courses
