• Richmond Jewish Community Hub


  • About Us

    Richmond Jewish Community Hub was created in 2018 as an inclusive cultural centre for the Jewish community of South West London. Based in the beautifully functional building of the Richmond Synagogue, RJCH is bringing a fresh wave of creativity and energy to the area. It wouldn’t have been possible without the support of The United Synagogue Community Development Fund.

    Our Vision

    Our vision is for the RJCH to be a hub of Jewish activity at the heart of the South West London Jewish Community. We seek to build an invigorated community infused with a fresh sense of unity and connected by strong Jewish values, a love for arts and culture, a passion for education, and a strong feeling of belonging.

    Our Role

    RJCH provides a place and programme of outstanding activities, clubs, courses and vibrant events that serve the whole Jewish community, regardless of age, denomination or level of observance.


    We do this by:

    • Reaching out to and building relationships with the diverse South West London Community
    • Listening to the kind of events that best serve this community and working to deliver on the needs identified
    • Acting as host to create a space where all feel welcome, appreciated, engaged and inspired.

    The Induction of Rabbi and Rebbetzin Golker

    The Golker's induction was a truly heartwarming event, where we had the immense privilege to welcome the Chief Rabbi Sir Ephraim and Lady Valerie Mirvis to Richmond Synagogue for the Rabbinic Induction, together with respected dignitaries and guests, including the Mayor of Richmond, Deputy Lord Lieutenant, MP Sarah Olney, Leader of Richmond Council and President of the United Synagogue, Michael Goldstein and so many other important and wonderful friends. All came together to celebrate and welcome the truly wonderful Golker's.

    We are blessed and looking forward many communal activities and events together!

    About Us

    Richmond Cheder is a warm and friendly Sunday morning Cheder that provides a fun and engaging way for our children to learn about their Judaism.


    Our aim is to provide a Jewish education that will enable our children to leave Cheder with a solid grounding of Jewish practice and fluency in Hebrew reading. We hope to impart the next generation with a love of Judaism and a positive sense of Jewish identity. Our staff bring high quality, hands-on learning that caters for children of all ages.


    We pride ourselves on our high staff-to-student ratio, including one-to-one Hebrew Reading teachers. We run special events around the Jewish festivals and periodic outings to bring Jewish education to life.


    Most importantly, parents tell us that all the children walk out with big smiles on their faces and look forward to coming each week!


    Please contact our Head Teacher to find out more information about the Cheder.
