Ivriah (Religious School)

Saturday morning learning at Ivriah


Ivriah is our Saturday school for children aged 5-13. We teach Jewish studies (culture, stories, history, cooking and more) and basic Hebrew – all in a fun, informal and creative way. Being part of Ivriah is a brilliant way for our youngest members to get to know each other, to learn about the community and their Judaism, and to be part of synagogue life.


Ivriah leads to our Bar and Bat Mitzvah programme for years 7-8. Our BM programme polishes up our teens Hebrew, helping them delve further into Judaism, and enabling them to create their own Jewish identity.

Message from our new Head of Ivriah, Michael Walton:

‘I’m very happy and excited to become Finchley Progressive Synagogue’s new Education Manager. I am passionate about my Jewish identity and passing that feeling onto younger generations. I love being part of a Jewish community and have been actively involved as a volunteer in Synagogue life for 25 years.  

Ivriah is clearly a great success and I’m really looking forward to working with Rabbi Rebecca and the rest of the team at FPS and making my contribution to the continued development of your education programme.’
